With the help of everybody here I customized my tabs. My intent was to either get all plugins on one tab or ensure I did not have to scroll through any one of the tabs. I hate the way the wheel would jump tabs. I also found most of the plugin names insteresting but not indicative of their purpose. So ultimately I made sure the tab described the purpose. I also had to get creative so no one tab had hidden (scroll down to find) plugins at my screen resolution and window sizing. Also I believe I have every plugin that is currently available for ASP (AFAIK) assigned to a custom tab.
I found the easiest way to find out the "name" of a plugin was to go to System Info. I copied the plugin info into a text file and then could copy and paste into my "customToolsUI.txt" as it was built. Some interesting discoveries:
*Tab order in the file, dictates tab order in ASP.
*Plugin order in the file, dictates plugin order in ASP.
*Extra lines in the file could help in organizing your file with no harm.
*Any plugin not specified in the file landed in the Plugin1 tab This made it easy locate the unassigned plugins one at a time and assign them to my customized tabs.
*If you use my or anyone elses file and do not have one of plugins ASP will ignore that line in your file without consequence.
