Yes, this I actually thought of.  However, much of my screen useage is 
actually the classical "log into remote machine, run screen, reconnect 
from different machines which may or may not stay on the network".  So 
while I could do this, I'd have to keep that master screen attached with 
the agent running.  Your other post solves my problem and is so 
beautiful I could cry.. *sniff*.
