My experiences with one of these tools (IIRC retty, but I'm not sure)
a few years ago were not very successful so I did not take this option
into account. Haven't tried any other tools since then.
Additionally, rescueing apt or aptitude if the according tool is not
yet installed is likely impossible without killing the running
apt/aptitude to install that tool.
But yeah, if we have options which are not much
work, but assist the admins in the dist-upgrade a lot, all less
comfortable or rough options, like this, can be ignored.
Thanks for the comment anyway. I learned that there is more than one
tool which could fetch a running program into screen. :-)
