My latest (admitedly hacky) solution to this is to host screen using systemd-nspawn. This makes screen idnependent of the docker daemon. The only problem that remains is that this still leaves me with no real ability to detach and reattach.

I honestly think screen or tmux are the last package. If you give me one or the other of those I can detach and reattach. Then I can host the other and everything else needed for a good dev UX (even X11, not that I want it) in a container.
