Apropos -Q:

-Q is nice, but I find it annoying that it still triggers a message
inside screen and even waits seconds for return until that message has

IMHO -Q should not trigger any output inside the screen session and
return immediately.

That way you could e.g. show in your prompt in which screen window the
shell runs. (Tried to use that for demoing screen recently. I use the
output of "tty" in the prompt now.)

                Kind regards, Axel
