Is it possible to place tab close button on the left side?

Now it is not convenient to close a number of tabs because each tab has its own size (depends on filename length) and you should perform some superfluous moving by mouse.
I tried it in TextMate and it is extremely convenient and user-friendly!

Hello Vladimir,

Now it is not convenient to close a number of tabs because each tab
has its own size (depends on filename length) and you should perform
some superfluous moving by mouse.

The close button is on the right because otherwise it would conflict with
the icon, and there's no option to move it. However, there are actions like
"Close all but this" that you can use for closing many tabs easily.

I see. Now if I want to close only, for ex., talk_attendee.rb, talk.rb, and conference_attendee.rb, I can't use actions like "Close all but this" because I have a lot of other files which I would like to keep as opened.  I should move my mouse 3 times, because files have different length.

If close button is on the left, I should move mouse only once. I think that icons won't conflict with close button. Maybe I am wrong, just a suggestion. A little suitable feature which supports "Develop with pleasure!"

Is the same effect not achieved using a middle mouse click? In your above example, I place my mouse over first tab 'talk_attendee.rb' and middle click three times without moving the mouse.... at least that is the case on my Debian setup.
