I have read "man watch" and tried a few things - it's really
versatile and still easy to use (for a not-so-technical user).
I'm even going to automate this a little bit (get terminal
id via "tty", start "mirroring xterm", display "press ^G when
done" message when done, and so on). The only thing that's a
bit annoying is the use of "sudo", but well, that's not a big
deal as sudo has been properly configured.
