Managing a large number of tabs in a traditional fashion can easily get unorganized - a solution to this could be implement a tab stacking feature (see Opera 11 for an example of how this can be successfully implemented: http://is.gd/DKgwtN). Using this feature, users could drag tabs into each other to combine them into a tab group - this group could then be used as a drop-down menu to switch between the tabs in it. Tabs could naturally be dragged in and out of groups at any time.

This would make it easy to sort and organize tabs with minimal effort, easily use Smuxi with a large number of tabs, and find the tabs you want to switch to much faster.

Doing it the way Opera does it would be hard, but a start could be to use a TreeView and have collapsible grouping tabs in the vertical view.
