Why do you need adjustable dropouts for an internal geared hub?

I guess I've always felt vertical dropouts wouldn't give me enough control at dialing in the chain tension, so I've been on the lookout for horizontal dropouts. Would you say today's hubs don't need that kind of adjustment? (Or is there some other built in adjustment?) If so, it would definitely open up my search more.
It's way over your price range but it fits your specs exactly.
