Ok, I found the answer to one of these (the -n option makes a page open 
on a tab). I'm still looking for information on how to make the tabs 

I don't mind hacking config files if that's the only way to fix it. I 
would even be willing to recompile Epiphany if the tab size is hard 
coded (though I don't see why it should be).
