I may need to understand screen a little better, but how does this
compare with simply getting into your remote Emacs/ESS/R via
'emacsclient -nw' in the local terminal SSH'ed to the remote machine?
One can start long jobs on a remote machine this way, and then 'C-x 5 0'
and logout.  It can be picked up at any time after that in the same way.
