Just the fun in cycling through to get where you need to go.

The 10 limit was nice since you could jump to the window you needed
with a quick ^A-num.  Anything past window 9 (0-9) and you had to cycle
to it.  But now we have named windows and a scrollable list (^A-"), so
getting where you need to go is much easier.

Now you just need to make sure your system has enough ptys to handle
that many shells.
