I'm not sure its such a bad idea (b/c I think one only really needs to remove tabs while in ML view) but if you don't like that, how about this:

in the extreme top left corner is the "main menu" button, (mine's burnt orange, with oscilloscope icon). add two buttons like it [sizewise] to the right of it, but to the left of the word "WINAMP"

one controls if the tabs are there or not.

the other completely replaces the "collapse window" button in the extreme bottom right which wastes an entire row[s] of space.

therefore, on my laptop screen, you would recover at least 2 centimeters worth of space.

well worth it imo, and cleaner overall.

personally, I'd want a button to always be there to do it / undo it, something similar to what I just described above. its not unlike the "windowshade" button.

I'd also like a button, next to the "Library" button at the bottom of the nav tree, that would hide/reveal the entire search row, including the 3 button area and the clear search button. again, that would reclaim a lot of space and be far cleaner for the 90% of the time I don't need it. an easy on/off UI for the user.

just my ideas DrO, I hope they are worthy.
