footclient persistent processes #395

What is the reasoning behind leaving the client process running while the window is open, vs only telling the server to open a new window, like urxvt does?

The processes aren't taking much ram for existing, but they strike my OCD as being unnecessary and polluting htop/ps. Would it be reasonable to have an option to exit immediately after opening a new window?

What is the reasoning behind leaving the client process running while the window is open

Primarily to be able to exit with the exit code of the client application (i.e. shell).

Would it be reasonable to have an option to exit immediately after opening a new window?

At least technically it would be easy to add. Whether it's a good idea or not, is something I haven't given much thought yet. Instinctively, it does sound reasonable.
