This could be scripted (and that Script used for example via Keyboard Shortcut or from a Configurator Panel).
Probably would be best to make two versions – on that saves changes in the other files and one that won’t.

You could ask if someone has such a Script already:

There ya go. Esoteric requests like this are readily solved by scripting.

Sure, this can be scripted, however I think it would be a nice (and logical) addition to the tab context menu. There should be a menu point „Close other tabs“ just like in many browsers and text editors. It would just make sense.
