The challenge: support toggling back and forth between two tabs with just a
click of the mouse. No fair moving the pointer.

You see when you click on a tab, and then click on it again, we should be presented  with the previous tab... of course! But currently no.

For now one needs to ^N (create a new window), to get this effect between two windows in icewm, etc.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

You see, one cannot do side by side comparisons of tabs, so at least you could make it easy to toggle back and forth with the mouse.

Yep, I would like this functionality. Clicking on your current tab should take you to the previous tab you were on, just like in windows xp clicking on the current application in the taskbar gives your previous window focus.
