Spinning off from bug 182126: the tab titles aren't accessible to VoiceOver.  

At least on 10.5 I have to enable (in the VoiceOver Utility's Navigation section) "VoiceOver cursor follows mouse cursor" to get lots of non-button, non-window-title chrome spoken, but even with that, tab titles aren't being read.

The custom tab widget class (in camino) just needs to implement the informal
NSAccessibility protocol and respond to such attributes as
NSAccessibilityTitleAttribute.

That is because I can't tab to them because of bug 280963 (and the various and sundry tab chain bugs).

This wires up all the accessibility bits we need to make tabs make sense to the accessibility system.
