But AIUI the intent was to have screen in ssh connections too.
We could have the case where d-i is first started with the serial
console, running through screen, and enable the network console, which
we'd also want to run through screen.
I'd thus say that we rather want the attached changes, to have one
screen session per terminal type.
I'm also thinking that we perhaps want to add -x when resuming a
session, so that somebody can connect trough ssh several times ?
