I'm not sure what's the correct term for it, but it's surely not
"screen session". What you mean is all scripts running the _same_
"screen session". I'm tempted to call it a "screen window", but since
there can be screen windows without any command running inside, I'd
expect that there must be a separate term for what holds a process
which again can be inside a "screen window".

What I did to solve this for myself was to write a script which
generates a temporary .screenrc (named differently) which basically
contains the line "source ~/.screenrc" and then one "screen …" line
per command I want to run in its own screen window inside that

After the file has been created, the same script which created the
temporary .screenrc calls "screen -c that.temporary.screenrc" and
deletes the temporary .screenrc afterwards again.

The script where I implemented this is at
