As suggested in the addendum above you could bind the command sequence
to a key.

One way to do this would be to stick the two commands in a file:

| $ cat $HOME/.scrbuff_screenrc
| scrollback 0
| scrollback 500

And add something like this to your $HOME/.screenrc

| bind 9 source $HOME/scrbuff_screenrc

You would then be able to hit 'CTRL-A 9' to clear the contents of the
scrollback buffer for the current screen window and reset it to a sane
value (here 500 lines).

I'm sure there are more elegant ways to do this, using a gnu/screen
registers for instance, but I wouldn't know the exact syntax off the top
of my head. 

By 'elegant' I mean a solution that lets you stick everything in your
.screenrc and avoid the clumsy extra file.
