Similar project already exists, search PowerShell in Software Map or maybe
Freshmeat. It is cool when you have limited space, and you can jump from one
to another with Control + number. Still a bit buggy (resize problems) and
needs some more features, like better title tabs (it just cuts text, argh!).

What all these Gnome Terminals really need is a fast way to change fonts,
like nxterm or eterm, a menu where you have some slots (Default, Alternative
Font 1 ... X, for example 6 alternative ones). Currently, in the cases where
you need to change sizes, it is a pain, and I use nxterm mostly of times due
this. IIRC this has been already reported as wish.
