yes, but will it send EOF to each bash window?
if it will not, I will lose my bash history!

I have following alias defined in my bashrc:

alias Q='[[ $WINDOW ]] && screen -X at '\''#'\'' stuff $'\''\04'\''; exit'
I often type quite complex commands (micro-scripts, actually) at the
bash prompt, and recall them using C-r.  I would like them to persist
for some time in the bash history files until they are eventually
forgotten due to dis-use. So, I love it that screen saves my bash
sessions from crashing when my connection fails, but I hate it that
screen does not tell the bash sessions in it to terminate when it is
exiting (e.g., when the host is rebooted).

In my ideal world the reboot script will send all screen sessions a
"finish" signal and screens will send EOF to each bash window they have.
