How to get tab visibilities for standard tab?


Trying to put a permission set in source control that grants access to the Ideas tab. I've been able to download the tab visibility by adding the Idea as a custom object to my package.xml, but that also downloads all the field and object permissions as well. Is there anyway to just grab the permissions for a standard tab?

In theory it would be something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Package xmlns="">

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

The standard tabs aren't exposed as top-level component in the metadata api. You can get at the visibility via the Profile, but you'd obviously need to retrieve all profiles to get the full picture.
