works fine with a small nit:
when there's only one tab, the "Tab Style" menu entry is missing.

In principle icon+label is best, both easier to locate and to click.
The only reason to display less is contrained space. IMHO.

Ideally, the tabs would gracefully degrade when there's not
enough space available. For increasing number of tabs:
  1. icon + label
  2. icon + short label
  3. icon only
  4. icon || arrows for scrolling

If i understand the GtkNotebook API correctly, it is not possible
to base something like this on the actual size of the tabs.

So, instead of trying to be clever i think it's best to
display only the icon as default (with tooltip) and
allow the user to customize as before.
