I'm not sure I understand what this means. If I have a shell on a
virtual terminal on the console, say running with /dev/vts/17/tty as
its controlling tty, it would be nice if I could log in remotely and
start a console client that talks to /dev/vts/17/console and
/dev/vts/17/input, giving me some kind of "multi-attach" to the shell.
Is that possible, or have I misunderstood the client<->console
interface?

Of course it would be an extra plus if I could somehow switch between
all virtual consoles that I own.
