When I started writing ta, no editors other than Vim, Emacs, and jEdit
supported infinite splitting which was FAR more useful to me than tabs.

If you're referring to the line number margin automatically re-sizing for
files with more than 10,000 lines, I don't want to have events firing
every keypress, '\n', paste, etc. checking for buffer.line_count > 9999.

If I spent more time on tiny details, ta would grow little by little into
a bloated, unmanagable mess. Focusing on keeping the core lean makes ta
excellent in the first place.
