Thanks for the comment.  What I did was close textadept, edit the
sessions file (with another editor) to place the tabs in desired order,
then reopen textadept.  That was probably just as much work as reopening
all the files per your suggestion, but it was a learning experience. 
:-)  Definitely much easier to just drag tabs to desired order, if it
were permitted.
