I'm wondering if there is some way to create a heirarchy/tree of terminals in a screen session on Linux?
I don't mind hacking on this, so if there is a project out there that's working on this, I'd like to get involved with it.
I'd like to have something like
1 bash 1.1 bash 1.2 bash 2 bash 3 bash 3.1 bash 3.1.1 bash 3.1.2 bash
It would be good if the terminals could be labelled instead of having to be navigated to via some arrangement that I suspect doesn't exist. So then you could jump to one using eg
^A:goto happydays or
Every browser offers the ability to create a flat set of tabs containing documents of an identical nature. GNU-
screen implements the same functionality without using tabs. Linux and OS/X window managers provide the ability to organize windows into an array of workspaces, which amounts to again, the same deal.
I'd like to be able to not only group things into a tree structure, but also to create references (aka symbolic links, aka pointers) from one part of the structure to another, as well as apply properties (eg default directory, colorscheme, ...) recursively downward from a given node.
