...except when you try to paste a shell script from
editor/browser/whatever.  Before I had ScreenTerm and could safely
disable hotkey I also used backtick but strange things happening when
pasting textwere annoying.

If you had any suggestions regarding keybindings (they're just
`prototype' ones, I use C-Menu (screen's colon command) for almost
everything) I'll be glad to hear them.

I prefer to run few screen sessions and have terminal windows
independent of each other.  Of course I can run the same session in
two windows but I like to have my net-related windows (irssi, ekg2,
SSH sessions, gnus-agent-batch) in one screen and `development' shells
(ones I temporarily use when programming) in second one, not
interfering with each other.  If I used single screen for everything
there'd be too much screen windows for me -- usually I use about 5
screen windows per session; more than 8-9 shells in one screen is just
confusing for me.
