Tabbed SSH terminals for Windows

There is a distinct lack of tabbed terminals for Windows. I’ve used SecureCRT 4, Putty, and more recently I’ve been using Rxvt under Cygwin (which doesn’t require X). However, none of these offers me tabbed terminals.

The latest version, SecureCRT 5 now supports tabs which is nice to see, however, it’s mainly designed to connect to remote machines which only solves half of my problem. The other half is that I want a tabbed terminal that gives me a Cygwin bash shell on my local machine.

Under Linux and FreeBSD we have the tabbed KDE Konsole, the Gnome Terminal, the Multi Gnome Terminal, MRxvt, and finally under MaxOSX we have iTerm.

Why are there no good tabbed terminals for Windows, or do I just not know about them?
