I'm not 100% clear on what you're trying to avoid from GNU Screen, but my
first thought when you said you wanted persistent sessions without GNU
Screen was "tmux". Count mine as a third vote for tmux, if that suits
Depending on your actual needs, you could also look into using the nohup
command. It's not a terminal multiplexer but, in the words of the
manpage, it allows you to "run a command immune to hangups, with output
to a non-tty".
