With tabs, the last page of text, and dir location being saved, I find
it extremely useful for development.
I only have a couple of Terminal Journal entries, one my default
(usually just in one of the activities directories I'm currently
working/testing on), and another with a bunch of tabs in various deep
sugar directory paths useful for poking about and tweaking Sugar
innards. Saves a heap of cd'ing about and trying to remember where
some darn Sugar resource buried.

I would find some scrollback handy, but buffer history state saving
would be a killer feature for me at least ;-)
