I'll ask whether this would be acceptable. As I mentioned in response to
William Crocker, I'm currently losing the battle that the requested idea is
a bad idea.

One issue with the tool button idea will just be finding an acceptable location
for it. There are already other widgets surrounding the QTabWidget in our UI,
so squeezing it in without having to rearrange everything else could be an issue.

Honestly, an decent solution would be where if I could modify the tab widget's
tab bar to never show the scroll buttons (easy enough with the usesScrollButtons
property), and instead always show the tool button. This looks harder though since
there doesn't appear to be an easy way to add widgets in the tab widget's tab bar.
