This might be possible to fix through the orientation argument to
#_HiThemeDrawTabPane, substituting #$kHIThemeOrientationNormal with #
$kHIThemeOrientationInverted. Let me know how it works out.

The style of the tabs can be controlled through the :version
attribute of the :HIThemeTabDrawInfo record passed to
#_HiThemeDrawTextBox as inDrawInfo. Setting :version to 1 makes the
tabs appear as segmented controls (modern appearance) while
a :version of 0 produces traditional tabs (legacy appearance). The
clipping or size of the tab view will have to be changed to make
segmented controls fit.
