Yes, I know that. But then you're stuck with "screen", which
uses "[n]curses()" and thus messes up the scrollback of the
terminal [while providing its *own* peculiar scrollback, which
you can only do by going into "select" mode, which messes up
cut & paste through X Windows]. Sometimes I prefer that, but
usually it's a hassle and I prefer the (almost) naked pipe
that "detachtty" gives you. It's a matter of taste. YMMV.
