I think this came up for TC9 or TCI, but I'd like to be able to set a background image for a tab in TC (different images per tab). The "Console" program (console.sf.net) does this and I find it very useful for visually distinguishing my tabs (as well as looking nice!) Console gives 2 options - a static image, and the current wallpaper (which gets updated dynamically). It also allows adding a "tint" to darken the image a little (useful for bright images). These options are non-essential, but very nice to have in practice. The key difference between this and TC's current transparency option is that the window borders and text are not affected, so you get a much clearer display. (I guess the other key difference is that transparency is a lot easier to code, so was not such a big problem to add :-)) Paul.
