Different Background For Each New Terminal?


I'm currently using Ubuntu 10.10. I frequently end up opening a few terminals and it's easier to keep track of what I'm doing if the terminals have different backgrounds or are colored differently. Is there a way already made which will start up a new terminal with a background different then one that's already open? Or a way that when the terminal is opened it will start the terminal under a profile that's not yet open? That being, when I open a terminal it opens the "first" profile. Then once I try opening a new terminal it checks and finds that I already have one with the "first" profile open and so the new terminal is opened with the "second" profile. Does anything like this feature already exist? Or something like it? Thanks for your time!
