sorry about this ..

My question is about screen _itself_ supporting 256 colors - ie. for
the status line display .. not screen's ability to run applications
that are 256-color capable. 

IOW, I have a bunch of apps running under screen with nice subtle colors
.. hopefully .. :-)  and I have this eyesore of a screen status line at
the bottom of the screen with some pure red .. pure green ..  blue ..
magenta .. etc.  So before I get rid of it altogether as a last resort,
I just thought I'd check whether I could have the screen hard status
line use darkkhaki3 .. on a lemonchiffon background with peachpuff
highlights instead.
