The multiple keys part is easy:

(define-key global-map [(f9)] 'electric-buffer-list)

Why hit 2 keys for something you do so often?

For, me tabs would be a huge annoyance.
I've got the WM set to no title bar for emacs.
I've got emacs customized for no toolbar and no menubar.
So, all I've got in Emacs windows is text.
