As far as I know, this isn't possible. However, if you select the tab you want 
to "drag over", you can click Edit > Copy (or Ctrl+C), open the other image, 
and click Edit > Paste (or Ctrl + V). That should get the results you're 
looking for.

As for your suggestions, the second one would actually be really nice. The tabs 
are a little too tall for my taste :P
