Multiple connections to singular shell session


Is three some shell that allows a user to login multiple times to the same session? Id expect to see something like the following, if achieved:

 14:16:42 up 9 days, 15:21,  5 users,  load average: 0.46, 0.85, 0.94
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU WHAT
jameson  tty1     -                14:16   22.00s  0.23s  0.08s -hypothetical_shell_same_PID
jameson  tty2     -                14Jul09  9days  5:30m  3.92s -hypothetical_shell_same_PID
jameson  pts/0    :0.0             Sun02    4.00s  5.88s  0.95s ssh -hypothetical_shell_same_PID
jameson  pts/1    :0.0             13:41   14.00s  0.32s  0.19s ssh -hypothetical_shell_same_PID

Screen can do that, multiple users to the same session. I guess it doesn't matter if those multiple users have the same name. Screen -x
