Comment(by mterry):

 Just coming back to this, sorry for delay.

 I examined other ways to shrink the dialog and was not happy with them
 (putting more stuff side-by-side makes things look cramped and violates
 the nice 1-column mode; making the 'send a message' format box a popup
 didn't save enough space).

 How about a slightly different approach to make the tabs more palatable.
 When the dialog is launched as a 'New Pounce' it will be a GtkAssistant
 that shows all options in different pages.  When you open the dialog to
 edit a pounce, you get what you see above in the screenshots -- same
 controls, just in tab form.

 Does that sound like a good compromise?
