Do the  tools in this thread rely on environment variables to find
their GUI?

If they do, something like «tmux -L test start \; new \; detach»
followed by «env -u DISPLAY tmux -L test attach» and therein «mtr», might work.  ($DISPLAY would remain set in the environment
of the $SHELL instance inside the tmux session; mtr(1) will run in
a window if $DISPLAY is set, and in the terminal otherwise.)

In the example the issue is that $DISPLAY is a per-process singleton
but its desired value depends on which tmux client is currently
active.  The right answer is obviously to invent a way to query the
$DISPLAY envvar via terminfo: that would let tmux(1) arbitrate between
different clients' values of the envvar and supply, at any given time,
the then-correct value… :P
