The layout is entirely theme dependant, so the latter is just an example and 
it will depend on the theme you use.

It's already been suggested that those themes which currently use the left to 
right layout should continue to do so in 0.22. It's new themes which I expect 
to do something different. The 'tab' example will be made available to 
themers, but may not be the default theme.

Again, depends on what the themer choses to implement. Something similar to 
this would be possible purely through XML changes when the movement animation 
markup is added.
