Note that the multi-card solution for tabs can still be used even if 
only a part of the window needs to change, as long as there is only 
one. You can group everything else (perhaps along with the tab panel 
itself) and include it on all the cards. Then create only what you want 
to change as card controls.

You _have_ to use the show/hide groups technique (or something similar) 
if you have more than one tab panel and they have to change
