Ah, yeah, I see it now.

I'd probably find that a little too subtle personally, especially when there was 8-9 tabs.

The other obvious candidate for an easy solution is to darken the background color of inactive buffers [and tab images], like this:

You could probably make an on_activated/on_deactivated plugin to flip colorschemes if it's a real PITA for you.

Just be sure to use something like the Idle Watcher from these old ST1 examples: http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/plugin-examples else you cop that hit during hot reloads. OUCH.

Or slightly lighten the tab background of the active group and darken the background of an inactive group
