AppleScript for "Open Terminal Here" command.Variants of this are all over the place. I modified one to work with the new tabbed feature n Leopards Terminal.app. This applescript opens a new tab in Terminal in the directory of the current Finder window. Open it in Script Editor, compile, save as an application and then drag the application to the toolbar of a Finder window.
