The titles in a JTabbedPane should be buttons, so I can
setMnemonic on them.
As it stands, applications with tabbed panes can't be driven
from the keyboard effectively.

A user should be able to press a hotkey to access a component such as a
JTextArea. If this component is enclosed inside a JPanel with a TitledBorder,
that border should have a mnemonic allowing the component to have its focus
It's not always appropriate to have a JLabel next to such a component; nor
should it be necessary.
I suggest adding the methods:
setDisplayedMnemonic(char aChar); and
setLabelFor(Component component); etc, as in JLabel
to the TitledBorder class.
