Okay, so after pushing Byobu for several years as a default command line experience within Ubuntu, I'm raising the white flag and surrendering :-(

I've just committed revisions 1728 and 1729 to lp:byobu that approaches this from the opposite direction -- enabling Byobu lovers an easy way to ALWAYS enable byobu on launch. As of byobu-4.46, you should be able to simply add to your local system's ~/.bashrc: "export LC_BYOBU=1", and everywhere you ssh into, that has byobu >= 4.46, should launch automatically. Basically, I've added this code to:

#/etc/profile.d/Z97-byobu.sh:
if [ "$LC_BYOBU" = "1" ] && [ -r "/usr/bin/byobu-launch" ]; then
        . /usr/bin/byobu-launch
fi
true

This could, perhaps, be a candidate for SRU to 11.10, if smoser and utlemming want to back out the byobu-by-default setting there.
