I don't have a strong argument. Say I'm logged in on a virtual
terminal directly on the console. Then I go elsewhere, and log in to
my home machine over the network. Then it's nice to be able to attach
to my virtual terminals on the console. And it would be cool to be
able to do that without having to start screen or a separate console
server in advance.

But on the other hand, perhaps that functionality is better put
elsewhere. For instance, it would also be nice to be able to attach to
terminals running under X, or perhaps even to an arbitrary pty.
