Wishful thinking - they don't!  In the case of Delphi, they use
VirtualTreeView all over the place (a custom draw component as you
should know). The editor tabs are custom controls, and so are many
other areas of the Delphi IDE (component palette etc). Use any Windows
"window query" tool to query the Delphi IDE interface and see what I
mean (a simple tool like MWSnap's Window Info function should do, but
there are many others you can use too).
