Thank you for the feedback.

The reason I find the -f option useful with -A is that now I can run
abduco -f -A session, for example when I start a ssh, to always get a
running session (either attaching, creating a new one or finishing a
terminated one and creating another). A small convenience.

Neither I plan to fight anybody over -f.

At the end of the day, I think abduco is mostly called from shell
scripts, so all the logic should probably be moved there. I think it
was an error to add the -A option to dtach (it should have been
achieved by dtach -a || dtach -c), but now that it is there, it is
easy to make an argument for -C or -f.
