Cacophony! What should IE do about startup tabs?

Let me have more than 8 of them, for a start. But there needs to be some kind of special case when the browser is being started by something else, like the handy prompt in Windows 7 that the hotspot you're connecting to is going to need more than just a smile to let you get connected, which says 'click here to enter more details'. In that case, I probably don't want all 8 tabs, because they'll all have the logon page rather than my page. And if the logon page plays a video, I'm going to have 8 videos starting a fraction of a second apart and giving the most interesting sonic effect of the nice lady being cloned while she's talking to me... aaaaargh!
