The discussion has popped up a few times, but we quickly discussed again
keeping the opened tabs/chats in Poezio between restarts yesterday[0].

We already have a "reorder" plugin that does that but it's all manual
work atm. One has to edit a text file themselves and then /reorder at
runtime to apply (generally not long after starting).

You can of course move tabs without any plugin.

I was also curious and read Inbox again today, thinking it could help.

I am missing important things though, a dumb list of JIDs that I can
set and retrieve, also keeping the order in which my tabs/chats are.

That seemed to correspond to the abstract of the protoxep so I'm curious
if there could be something done about it.
