Why not put it as a setting? Thus the user decide how you want to use.

> Hi,
> I wasn't liking the default tab display of MonoDevelop. It used up too much
> space, combined with C#'s usual long filenames, I'd see only two or three
> tabs at a go. I tried hacking a more frugal tab label system, and was sort
> of successful.
> I changed MonoDevelop.Components.TabLabel and
> Monodevelop.ide.gui.sdiworkspacewindow and made the following changes:
> 1. Removed icon and the close button - Ctrl+W and middle click works fine
> for me.
> 2. Stripped text to 7 characters and added ellipsis.
> I've attached before and after screenshots. You can take a look and get a
> better idea of what I have in mind.
> The best option is to settle for a middle-ground and write a system which
> automatically shortens titles when there are more tabs opened. Firefox has a
> robust implementation of this, and it doesn't seem simple to implement.
> I wanted your opinions on my change, whether something like this would help
> improve MonoDevelop.
> Thanks,
> Andy
