Hi Michael, screen users,

I don't know if it would work but maybe you could bind screen to use an
obscure unicode character

no luck. Screen is not utf aware on this level. I used to use "°" but with the switch to utf8 -terminal it did not work any more. I opened a bug for this issue:

I now also use ctrl-^.

As almost all of Ctrl-A to -Z are used to some extent in applications I use daily, or are way to hard to type fast, I went for Ctrl-Z since, in my opinion, the need for backgrounding a process is much less when inside screen. I can always press Ctrl-z z when I need to, but that not often inside screen. The distance between Ctrl and Z is also quite short on most layouts, so it's easy to type, as opposed to most of [ / ] ^ and _ which on my keybord require an additional Shift or AltGr.
