I want to launch a new Terminal, or better yet, add a new tab to an existing window, from a shell script. For example I want to be able to do

open -a Terminal /some/directory

and have it open a new terminal in that directory. I want to use this to launch terminals from shell scripts and stuff. Any ideas? Thanks.
QUOTE Thanks
