[OS X Emacs] Aquamacs 1.4rc1 Tab selection: shortcut suggestion

the new Tab feature works great for me!
Here are some minor points I have noticed:

(1) In the Windows menu it says
"Select Next Tab"  A-}
"Select previous Tab"  A-{
This is consistent with the corresponding functionality in Safari,  
which, however, does not work well at all with a German keyboard  
layout. To my delight, I found that A-M-<left> and A-M-<right> (with  
M: alt) also changes between Tabs, which makes much more sense. If  
this is not the intended default behaviour (or is it?), I think it  
should be and it should say so in the menu. Another good keyboard  
shortcut (I know that I can define whatever custom keyboard shortcuts  
I like and I do; however, it would make things easier when convincing  
colleagues to also use Aquamacs) would be C-<tab>, this is what  
VisualStudio uses for that purpose in conjunction with an extended  
selection screen.

(2) When deactivating "Options:Show Tab" the Tabs vanish as expected,  
however, when re-activating the option, they remain hidden.

(3) I have just upgraded to MacOSX 10.5.3 - Aquamacs is still working
