Is there a way to specify the name of the logfile that is created when using the -L option?

Here's a patch that makes -L take an optional argument.
(So %screen -L bash  will use "bash" as the base for the logfile,
but % screen -L - bash will use "screenlog" for the logfile
and will execute bash, while % screen -L bash -bash will
run bash and use "bash" as the basename.)
