So you have to use two different programs, one of which is a port, to
accomplish what nohup will do by itself. :) My point being that a lot of
people seem to think that screen(1) is the answer, no matter what the
question, when often simpler answers exist.
If you're one of those people, that's fine, I learned a long time ago I'm
not going to change your mind. But I do think it's useful to note that
there are other valid solutions, even if simply for completeness sake.
