"Tabbed" Folding: Fold Multiple Proteins Simultaneously

I have noticed that when you are working on a few different proteins, you have to stop working on one in order to start working on another. It would seem to me that especially since you aren't always having to keep an eye on whatever you're using at the moment (e.g. you're running a long recipe or you're letting something like Wiggle or Mutate Sidechains run for a while to check back later), that seems like time lost when you could be busy setting up rubber bands or doing something else on another protein that does require your full attention.
If it's not too difficult to implement or would slow down the program too much, maybe you could have something similar to browser tabs in the game window, each one corresponding to a different protein that you're working on. Then you could work on another protein when your other one(s) are doing something that you'll let run for a while before coming back to it/them. In addition, if you decide to stop working on a particular protein but keep working on others, you could just close its tab and switch back to the one you were last on.
