And it'd be cool if it was implemented :).
I agree with Nick, once we have MRU-like Ctrl-Tab behaviour which we
all want to have as it seems, then we can talk about
modifying/adjusting the code naviagation. But the first step is the
MRU-llike Ctrl-Tab which is firstly independent from any code
navigation changes.

I think a one-command solution would be better.
Do you want to also use a small window to show cycling between tabs
like window managers do? That would be a cute and handy feature but
also might get unusable with many open tabs (I usually have between 25
and 35 files open). Just as a note.
