comment GNU Screen for X11 Forwarding
I tried this solution, but I cannot close my ssh session without killing the running X application. This somehow defeats the purpose of it... How should I disconnect from the remote host leaving the remote application running?

xpra is also called screen for X, which describes well what it does and is available on all the usual platforms.

comment How to include commands in Bash's PS1 without breaking line length calculation?
To second @l0b0 question, I'll add that using PS1 and \[...\] works fine as long as you can put all the code you want to generate your prompt in a single string. However, if you want to split your code into small functions, you come to a point where you cannot put the starting and ending brackets in the same string/function. And that breaks line wrap. Unless you resort to using PROMPT_COMMAND to recompute your PS1 at each prompt.
