Xpra: Ticket #42: suggestion: "xpra detach" command

ref: http://code.google.com/p/partiwm/issues/detail?id=40

Reported by Lalo Martins, Dec 2, 2010:

My pattern of using xpra is that I leave a session running permanently on my home server, then attach to it from my laptop when the laptop is on. When I want to detach, I usually do "ps xw | grep xpra" and then kill the ssh process. It would be nice if xpra itself had a "detach" command instead, to better mirror screen.

Thanks again for the great software and the help with the other issue :-)

Have you tried using the "detach" option from the tray icon menu available in recent releases?

Ahh! the menu item works great, although I think it might be nice to have a command line interface to it as well.

r277 adds "xpra detach" command - was trivial to add

although it could be done better/cleaner, I think this will do
