Here's the cat's meow: do all this in multiple tabs and save the
configuration of each tab. The old multi-gnome terminal could do this.
Does anyone know of a terminal that can do that? Preferbaly non libvte

So I'd have 8 tabs, each with potentially a different working
directory, a different start up command, a different bash-history.
Then I'd save that profile.

Sorry to highjack this thread but you were closing in on something
that's bothered me for a while.
