John Q. User log:
$ emacs & #oops, wanted to do "(emacs &)"
[1] 1976
$ fg
emacs tcp-tips
[1]+  Stopped                 emacs tcp-tips
$ (bg&) #maybe try this?
bash: bg: no job control
$ jobs
[1]+  Stopped                 emacs tcp-tips
$ bg  #sigh
[1]+ emacs tcp-tips &
anyways, John Q. wanted to make his already running emacs& into a
(emacs&).  He is miffed that apparently even in this day and age of
high technology, he probably has no way to do this with current bash?

[ (emacs&) would be immune to whatever happened to the parent shell,
so that's why I use it. ]
