Bug Description

We need to be able to disable the animation which occurs when a tab is selected, causing it to immediately settle on the selected tab.
Use case:
Opening Indicator tabs must have selected tab in view without animation. Further tab switching due to lateral position must be animated.

Can we use a single property to disable animations and enable "hint-state" (that is, no single tab title is highlighted, but all of them are "greyed out")?

We want the selected one highlighted and not animating when we first open the indicators.
The others being present but greyed out is part of #1203685, and needs separate control as it's valid also when the tabs are animating.

  * Restructure tab bar code and improve autopilot tests: - Split up
    NewTabBar into TabBar (Components) and TabBarStyle (Themes). -
    Expose tabBar property in Tabs - Make Header.contents an Item
    instead of Component - Improve autopilot tests not to rely on
    arbitrary sleep times The goal of this change is to prepare for
    additional properties that will be added to TabBar in a following MR
    in order to support behavior that is needed for the indicators.
  * Add bool properties alwaysSelectionMode and animate to TabBar for
    greater control of its behavior. (LP: #1204121, #1203685)
