No real answer, but:
- XP has the capability to group 'like' windows under one menu in the 
taskbar
- eConsole (http://www.corion.net/econsole/index.html) puts a graphic 
frontend on console windows. The author did this to provide background 
windows, but it can probably extended to add tabs. It is written in 
Delphi and source is available.
- Take Command (http://jpsoft.com/tcmddes.htm) is a commercial utility 
that provides a GUI interface to console windows. They haven't tabs 
either, but maybe they are planning them.
