I do hope to eventually add environment save/restore, among other things.

Yeah, I would love to see some better theming for gtk.Notebook - or an
alternate Sugar toolkit class specifically for tabs.  And tab specific
toolbar icons would also be most welcome.

I currently have: Open New Tab, Close Tab, Next Tab and Previous Tab.

I also plan to add 'New Tab with Command' which prompts the user for a
command using an Alert, and then re-executes that command each time the
Terminal instance is resumed.   The overall goal is to use the concept of
resumable activities to make Terminal more like GNU screen :)
