    An enhanced version of your entry is included in the official
terminfo database coming with Ncurses 5.6, since 2006-10-07, together
with some variations around (BCE or not, hardstatus or not, 16 or 256

screen-16color          GNU Screen with 16 colors

screen-16color-bce      GNU Screen with 16 colors and BCE

screen-256color         GNU Screen with 256 colors

    Database surely deployed everywhere before second quarter 2038.
