Are you simply looking for a tag/workspace mechanism, or do you want
the ability to detach and reattach sessions?

- tags/workspaces are a straightforward addition to dvtm, since it
was derived from dwm. (I have it mostly working for myself, but I had
to rip out a lot of dvtm-specific things like 'minimize')

- GNU Screen does detach/reattach.
