Originally opened as coreos/toolbox#17

I'm not a fan of 'mosh', however, mosh might fill a gap. cutting to the quick: The connection between my desktop(chromebook) and my development server (CoreOS running on GCE) is not reliable. Regardless of whether it's my network or because I'm moving between job sites. (have you ever seen those people who walk around with their laptops open as they go from one meeting to another?

I've logged into my CoreOS as a toolbox user. (a) only one toolbox connection at a time... probably need to launch an ssh server too (b) when I lose my connection I also lose the toolbox session. I strongly disagree with the security claims that the mosh team makes and while it's not worse than ssh it might help with the connection stuff. (unless toolbox was meant to be extremely transient)

When I launched my mosh session from my chromebook I got this:

Trying authentication type Password
Bad response when running mosh-server: 'systemd-nspawn: invalid option -- 'c'

    bob@'s password:
