I like this idea with one qualification, when launched from a terminal
the new program takes the place of that terminal. That's the main
reason I stick with TUIs right now, so that I don't have a bunch of
extra terminals floating^Wtiling around. I vaguely recall reading
about this at some point, guess I'm off to google.
