If currently fails for two reasons.

1) screen can't deal with the sequences. This isn't so hard to
   implement, so it'll probably work in the next version.
2) vim must request the sequences. Vim currently checks if $TERM
   eq 'xterm' and does a version query to check if the xterm version
   if new enough. vim should be patched to be able to deal with

Hmm, maybe screen should also be patched to try a xterm query.
But AFAIR default xterm doesn't support it.
