Re: attaching detached sessions to the current one

In my main use model, I'm multiplexed at multiple levels.  I often have more 
than one computer going (meaning two keyboards, two mice, two monitors).  I 
then usually run virtual desktop managers, giving me 4 to 6 desktops.  I then 
open up a bazillion xterms, because I generally prefer to have everything 
visible at the same time.  I then run screen only for jobs I'll want to detach 
and reattach later.  The wrapper concept is useful in this model for the cases 
where you realize after the fact you'll want to detach and move something.
We sell Spatulas, and that's all!

I just do everything in screen.  But if you're tired of doing C-a
space to change screens, then just keep to one window in screen...  ;)

(To me, if you've got more than one screen, then you've got a reason
to use screen all the time anyway...)
