If you have Apple's X11 installed, you can go one up on the Terminal.app idea, and switch it into "full screen mode." The background is a non-distracting checkerboard of black and white, so even if you don't make the console window quite fullsize, nothing else shows through. Or you can even install NEdit or Xemacs for a GUI-esque X11 experience.
