I have lots of virtual desktops each set up to "do their own

to re-setup. I know I could use `screen` for this, but that
only gets me half-way, as I'd still have to restart `screen` on
each of them.

localhost or something, where I could just change my external
IP, but not lose any of the connections. Or perhaps there is
