"nohup" won't work, as "ssh" requires a terminal. So "screen" is one of
the few options that will work.

You can setup "screen" to automagically launch commands in whatever
screen you wish when started. I.e., you should write your script to
launch the commands under screen.

The nice, additional benefit of this approach is that you can check on
the status at any time by connecting to that running screen.

P.S. Another option would be to dedicate tty8 or something to running
this script. That would work on boot.
