Feature Requests

I manage a large cluster so using this tool would be very helpful to me. Some of this may already work, I'm trying beta 3.0. Specifically, I want to be able to do the following things:

Script opening of multiple hosts. For instance, I would request "open host[1-7]" and it would open 7 hosts in different tabs.

On to the compose bar, it would be great if the compose bar would do a quick "diff" against the text you recieve in other windows against the text you recieve in the one you're watching, allowing of course for different hostnames, and just highlight or blink any window not matching what you're looking at.
