I had a look at tmux now, and it probably took me 5 hours to convert my screen
config to tmux. But I got it all working now, ssh-agent within tmux, shortcuts
to past my vim- and bash-config, tmux-sessions aka screen-"groups" for my
various customers, and even sticky split screens so the last 5 lines show me
the live-logs of the server I'm working with (this wasn't possible with screen
at all I think). all that made permanent with a config-file, colorful, slick
and neat. good bye, screen, it was a pleasure working with you.
