If you got a tabbed frame with 10 clients attached all having a
title like ' /home/tube/projects/..' you
won't be able to decide for a specific client, you even would
need to cycle through all tabs all the time to pick up a
specific one (simply because the bar would look like:
| tu.. | tu.. | tu.. | tu.. | tu.. | ...).

Stacks of tagbars scale much better than tabs and they don't
need an additional navigation layer. The space which is wasted
for stacking is pretty minimal, though it consumes somewhat more
space than tabbing. All in all stacking sucks less than tabbing
if you can create new pages dynamically, which provide arbitrary
space if the space gets unhandy in a column.
