I think the best solution would be to make "at least one tab" the new
default *and* have a Lua-based script to switch to "no tabs" if only one
tab/buffer is shown, toggling back to show tabs as a second buffer is
created. That way, no new user setting needs to be introduced and
clutter can be kept to a minimum for those who want it (I do, too) ...

I'm happy to write that script unless someone wants to give this a shot ...
