I betcha this would be a medium-easy tool to write.  Here's how I'd  
do it:  the tool could add "save configuration" and "load  
configuration" menu entries.  Saving a configuration would just write  
a bunch of paths to a file.  "load configuration" could read selfsame  
file and open corresponding tabs.

Alternatively, you could have a tool save these as a fresh preference  
item; you'd lose the flexibility of having multiple configuration  
files, but it would be one less thing to worry about.  And yes, you  
could probably just save them as drscheme exited.

Sounds neat!
