           Summary: Moving shells between konsole sessions
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: cragos myrealbox com

Version:           Konsole 1.3, KDE 3.2.0 (using KDE KDE 3.2.0)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.2 20031218 (Gentoo Linux 3.3.2-r5, propolice-3.3-7) 
OS:          Linux

I have a suggestion that might not be feasible to implement.  

It'd kick ass to be able to move shell a between konsole sessions.  I often have 4-6 shells running in 2 or 3 sessions of konsole, to keep everything logically separate.  E.g. a development desktop, a desktop with wine, mplayer, gaim, etc running out of site, out of mind, and each with a shell in that desktop's konsole session, etc.

However, when I finish one set of tasks, I often have one little shell running, say with wine or mkisofs, a video encoder, etc. that I don't want to kill, but that doesn't warrant the screen real-estate.  In that particular kind of case, this requested feature would really feel nice.

It might work, however, if each shell within a konsole session is or can be easily made to work as a separate task.  This would allow for the last shell of a konsole to be detached, if the konsole stuff around the shell is also a separate task.

Note that this might also make a tiny detached konsole able to run w/less memory or other resources too.

I know this is a kind of weird request, but I hope it is useful.
