There’s an extra mode other browsers don’t have to care about. Even if
it’s fixed in tabbed to have a more dynamic release and addition of tabs
the concept of embedding wouldn’t be useful anymore. It’s still under‐
used as it could be. Instead separate sub‐standards evolved in every ap‐
plication. I don’t see any need for further research into this direction
as of now to have more embedding everywhere.

Separating the button events into config.h should be possible. I would
welcome a patch.
