A while ago, I've played with mosh(*) as Tramp connection method. It is
designed exactly for your case, supporting reconnection of lost
sessions. I failed, because mosh is designed to draw on a screen, which
is not what Tramp needs in a connection buffer.

Your idea to reconnect to an existing screen / tmux session would suffer
from the same problem I guess. At least I'm not aware how to support
them in an Emacs buffer.
