o  hierarchicalIndexOfChild: aView

o  lastUserSelection

o  lastUserSelection: something

o  list
return the list of Tabs or Labels

o  list: newTabItemListOrNil
set the tab-list.
warning: transforms the given list to a list of tabItems,
where each holds on to a corresponding list element.
When a new list comes in, the list elements are compared for identity.
This may make problems, when strings come in.
Q: should we compare for equality here?

o  listIndexOf: something
convert something to an index into the list;
returns the index or nil if not found

o  numberOfLines
assume one line at least
