awww that's the easy way out... =)

The most indispensible feature of screen is its detachability.  from work,
or anywhere else your connection is questionable and you are likely to
lose your session, it keeps you from losing any work in progress.

I guess in the true spirit of having a lightweight window manager,
screen is the right answer.  And you get all the bonus functions like
searchable scrollback, etc etc etc.
