in one window, on a TabControl, with three tabs.

Giving access to the three items seemed to be the general outcome from
http://markmail.org/thread/ps624fynpzjnr65u Three buttons or links to
launch the three README, NOTICE and LICENSE didn't seem a good design,
so I've chosen a single button that executes a dialog with a TabControl,
with three tabs.

we already have an hyperlink control for the contributors page (though
rather updated), I'm not sure if there is room for 3 links more.
