Visually distinguishing sites in tabs (by colour or custom name)"

The tab feature in the client is great but it also increases mistakes when transferring files to sites with similar directory structures. It happened to me frequently that I dragged a file onto the wrong server because I assumed that a different tab was active. This can be extremely dangerous when transferring to a production web site. Therefore right now I always make sure that I only have one tab open.
A simple way to avoid this would be to allow color-coding sites. The 'General' tab of the site manager would need one additional field with a color-picker where a user could associate a color code with a site.
When the tab for that site is selected, the background color of the client window would change into that color.
Thus I could have three sites open, one with a background color of light green, another with light red, another with light blue. When I select the first one, the gray default background would change to light green. The white background color of the controls, of course, would not change. When I then select the third site, the background color would change to light blue.
