Yes, HydraVM architecture designed in way, that its potentially easy
to shuffle heads.
Early, i'm even thinking about adding some magic keys (like Alt-TAB ..
) to shuffle ownership of screen and input between images.
Or even add support to have each thread having own separate window and input.
But i'm not sure if we really need to push things in that way, because
its would be not better than running multiple processes each with own
In another turn, an absence of ways how you can interact with images
directly pushing you forward to develop a ways how you can control
them remotely. Which is good :)
