I'm reading over the tmux manual and as best I can tell, if set is given with no flags, it's a "session option" by default, which I assume to mean that it only applies to that one session.

If the -g flag is provided, it's a "global session" option. Which I assume to mean it applies to all sessions.

Now, if I do setw -g, that's a global window option, which I assume to mean that it applies to all windows in a session, which is the same as as set with no flag.

Then there is the -s flag, which means it applies across the entire server. This sounds like it would apply to all sessions, which sounds like the same thing as set -g flag. But I don't think this can be right. That doesn't sound right, though, because then why have two flags that do the same thing?
