Guake: autostart with several tabs and autorun different applications

Is it possible to tell guake to start with e.g. 4 tabs, running cmus in tab 1, mc in tab 2, htop in tab 3 and showing up the prompt in tab 4?

"Here's what I use to launch 4 tabs when I'm doing rails development.
guake --rename-tab=""Rails Server"" --execute-command=""cd ~/Aptana\ Studio\ 3\ Workspace/sample_app/ && rails s"" &
sleep 2 &&
guake --new-tab=2 --rename-tab=""Rails Test"" --execute-command=""cd ~/Aptana\ Studio\ 3\ Workspace/sample_app/ && 'autotest'"" &
sleep 2 &&
guake --new-tab=3 --rename-tab=""Rails Console"" --execute-command=""cd ~/Aptana\ Studio\ 3\ Workspace/sample_app/ && rails console"" &
sleep 2 &&
guake --new-tab=4 --rename-tab=""Rails Terminal"" --execute-command=""cd ~/Aptana\ Studio\ 3\ Workspace/sample_app/ && clear"" &

Works like a charm :)"
