The problem with abundance of features in gnome-terminal is the developers destroyed the actually useful features. I begin wondering whether they actually use their own piece of software.
When you keep quite a set of terminals, setting their titles (to a form “prefix + program-defined part”) helps immensely to navigate. Now please tell me why this feature has been removed? Have the developers asked the users about that? No. They just removed. And a number of other features as well.
This is the question of convenience. Gnome-terminal wasn’t “superpowered” at all.
Judging by what I see in responses in the mentioned bug tracker, it makes little sense to convince those who ignore the inquires.
