You should make feature request for those. Because I am not likely to
look at them myself, sorry.
I just picked this up as long as it was/is editor related.
About the toolbar text+item => IMHO there should be a global option, and
all windows should follow.
About your original request. There is actually a menu entry (menu
"Windows") "Manage Source Editors"
That allows sorting, but again only one at a time. It could allow multi
select. You can also keep it open, and use ti to go to each editor.
Except the current layout makes it too wide.
(It can show alpha-sorted, but then it will not move the actual tabs /
if it is not sorted, it will move tabs)
You can propose a patch to this. Might be accepted. (But no promise).
