Well, actually i hoped i could get rid of it with Leopards tabs, but i  
can't find a way to set the title of them, so it's quite hard to  
distinguish between sessions.. Makes it extremely less useful.

Screen gives me "tabs", in my terminal, and i can label them as i  
want, and some other nice stuff.

I'm very often logged on at several different remote machines, and i  
had this: (http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~willu/RemoteEdit/) running on  
all of my machines, so i could just "mate <filename>", in all of my  
"tabs", no matter what machine is was currently "working on" ..

But it doesn't seem Apple Events are playing nice on Leopard, as i get  
some errors in console, trying to set it up again. Hoping for a fix  
real soon, because it was incredibly easy to use TextMate no matter  
what remote box i was logged in to.
