I agree, tabbing is always efficient.  Just an idea:  instead of 
"tabbing", could the "guisection", or a similar function, stack stuff in 
a box with slightly, yet distiguishable, different colored background? 
Along with other stuff in the same tab?

Note, the "tooltips" pop only when the cursor floats over some 
descriptive text.  Can they also appear when the cursor points directly 
in an/the input box?
