I see how this can be useful in some cases. However it has become quite
a mess. Consider the following:

 abduco -n demo
 abduco -f -A demo

with your patch this first attached to the session and upon completion
created another new session. I don't think this was intended? I pushed
a fix for this roughly based on your patch.

Due to some unrelated changes you should remove or chmod 700 your
$HOME/.abduco folder.

Please provide feedback whether this works as expected.
