[TxMt] Changing background colour based on file name

I have the situation where I have files with the same name (and similar content) in different sub folders and it is very easy to edit the incorrect file as the two tabs look the same.

 A few ways to make this more obvious would be to change the background colour (of the edit window) or the colour of the tab (or text in the tab)  based on something in the file path.  Is there anyway of achieving such a thing?

I recall you can do something with the window title so this may be one way to help, but using colour would make it easier to see rather than having to read the full path name.
