If Tony B turns informant, would Tony S kill him?

#1
Going by the last episode, I'm sensing a possible plot development. Adriana called the Feds after Christopher complained to her about Tony B getting the job running the casino. It seems obvious that Adriana is causing/will cause the set up of Tony B by the feds.

I'm thinking that the feds are going to realize Adriana has given them Tony B and thus try to turn him informant. I also think that faced with the prospect of going back to jail, and given that he has his own issues with Tony S and is envious of Tony S's success, that Tony B *would* turn informant.

This would set up a poignant storyline. Tony Soprano had two people who were closer to him than any of the other guys, who were like his brothers-- Big Pussy and Tony B. We know that when Tony Soprano found out that Big Pussy was an informant, he agonized endlessly over it and finally killed him. And has been haunted by it ever since.

So what if we come back to the same problem again. Tony Soprano had to kill one "brother" and now would be faced with the other one also becoming an informant, and suddenly he's expected to kill him too. I'm betting that if it comes to it, Tony Soprano finally has to admit he made the wrong choice in killing Big Pussy, and that he can't do the same thing to Tony B. Even though sparing Tony B's life would probably cause major problems within the family and especially with Johnny Sack.

This could set up the confrontation between Tony Soprano and Johnny Sack that seems to be coming. Because for once Tony follows his heart and not his head and does not kill Tony B.

Sound realistic?

It seemed to me only natural for Tony to have some on-going discomfort over killing Big Pussy. They were very close and I think it's apparent that Tony has deep love and emotional connections to many.
However, I don't think he ever regretted killing Pussy - it was something that he had to do, no matter how distasteful or undesired. It was necessary for business and the completely proper decision for a boss.
