(73/161) 2916057 - Console: Multiple tabs for system shell

It would be nice to be able to have more than one system shell open at a time in the Console plugin, maybe a multiple tab interface would work.

Funny, that was one of the first things I thought about adding to it, and Slava told me not to, since we can create multiple separate floating instances. But that's not the same, really?

Then I thought, oh wait, mydoggy lets you share tabs between dockables. What if you create "new floating instances" and bring them togehter in tabs, can achieve the same thing?

But it seems MyDoggy does not allow "new floating instances".

If MyDoggy allowed "new floating instance" then you could get multiple console tabs for any shell.

To whoever volunteers to do this:
please don't use the built-in JTabbedPane though, it wastes vertical space.

It might be better to just add a "+" button that creates another shell switcher combobox (perhaps in a small panel) all in the same horizontal layout that has the current shell switcher combobox.

Then the comboboxes can be used as the tab buttons.
