I know for sure that in the mean time you can use the GNU "screen" utility
to maintain an active terminal between login sessions. What should work is
a screen session running tmux, or you could just run multiple screen
sessions if you don't mind not tiling. Screen will even preserve a session
through accidental drops in ssh. (use "ctrl a + d" to detach a current
screen without terminating the process in that screen)
