No, stacking is the better tabbing. Tabbing is not planned to be
included again, we removed it for various reasons. In summary:

- tabbing makes an additional navigation layer necessary,
  stacking not
  (additional navigation layer means more complex user
- tabbing don't scales well with more than 3 clients, the
  titlebar would get cropped off, stacking scales up to 30
  clients in modern screen resolutions
- tabbing don't scales well with tagbars (for wmii-4 they are
  planned to be directly editable), stacking does scale fine

For more reasons see the mailing list archives.
