Just an FYI, I have already made this change. Screen already had a command
'maxwin', execpt previously, it was not possible to increase the value of
maxwin. Now, the initial value is set to 100, and it can be increased to a
higher value, but you would have to do it before any window is created.
(so you would put 'maxwin 500' in your .screenrc before any 'screen'
 command you might have).
