Benefits of having the small bar with the full title:
 * You get to see the full name of the pad, which is rarely true on
the tab, and will become even less true if we add close and undock
buttons as well.
 * It is easier to see which pad is selected. It's pretty easy to
distinguish, for example, the Solution and Unit Tests pads from their
but the Solution, Classes, Files, and Document Outline pads can all
appear very similar at a glance.
