I work with two displays.

I usually open one instance of Vim in display #1 (let's call it Vim #1), which over time ends up having an open buffer for nearly every file in a project.

Now I want to open one of the files in display #2, with a separate instance of Vim (#2). I ideally want to see the file in the same state I've got it somewhere inside Vim #1: with the same unsaved changes.

I ultimately want to have two separate Vim instances simultaneously editing one buffer (possibly sharing the same .swp?).

Is there a way to do that in Vim?
