Invoking Terminal with multiple tabs.

I've just started using Terminal and am very pleased with it. However, I like to have eight tabs open and would like to invoke it so. Other term-ems allow this, e.g. 'sakura -n 8' gets eight tabs. Problem with sakura is the tabs are all the same colour, can't tell where you are.

The Terminal manpage doesn't list this option. Seems a pity; it's the only feature I'm REALLY wanting on what is otherwise my term-em of choice. Can it be done, or could it be added?

Re: Invoking Terminal with multiple tabs.

This seems to work here (xfce4-terminal 0.6.1 (Xfce 4.10)):

xfce4-terminal --tab --tab --tab --tab --tab --tab --tab
