I'd be all for it, too. I guess you suggest to enable the "shopt -s

Well, either that or change the SIGHUP handling to leave existing jobs
alone. I actually tend towards liking that stuff I fire up into the
background survives closing the terminal (as under BeOS). It would also
avoid risking data loss (imagine you started an editor into the
background). But I suppose it mainly depends on what you're used to...

+1 ("as under BeOS")

Now, nothing forbid us to add Terminal a new settings called "kill all jobs on close" or whatever could describe this more genocidal behavior regarding child
processes...

As under BeOS by default, plus an extra feature via a setting. It sounds very
much like Haiku to me.

Isn't there a very well defined way to deal with sessions, process groups, etc? If a process wants to live beyond the session it's in, it needs to detach itself from the group. Hopefully these new changes are following the standard model for this, doesn't make any sense to invent something new at this point.
