Hi Bernhard,

Which is true for a simple reason:

The tabs are not enabled/disabled at every textarea element, instead there
is just a little JavaScript file (typo3/tab.js) which automatically finds
all textareas that match the class name "enable-tab" and modifies them

See TSConfig also.

> Anyways +1 ... it is obvious

Thanks, committed to both branches.
