Guess the focus

Description of problem:

If you open gedit and create two tab groups by doing Right-Click on Tab -> Move to new tab group, you can not distinguish visually which one is active (has focus). The blinking cursor is a hint but useless in non-text tabs.

There needs to be a way of distinguishing an active tab group from an inactive one (graying out a bit, bold text etc.). 

Clarification: this is _not_ about a selected tab within a tab group but an active tab group between tab groups.

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:

tab groups are not a gtk feature, this will have to be addressed in gedit. you'll probably have more success by filing a bug upstream in bugzilla.gnome.org against gedit.
