[screen-devel] screen maintainer

seeing as we came yet again to standstill with new release, I would like
to volunteer myself as GNU Screen maintainer.

Some of you may know that I maintain separate development tree on github
( in which I have a more
than 300 changes committed in comparison with official tree. So I may
as well do this officially ;)
Changes include:
* new features (256 colors in hardstatus, hardstatus on top,
truecolor, ...)
* removal of ancient code (removed most of #ifdef for ancient systems)
* removal of features which didn't seem useful or could be replaced
* rewrites of some functionality
* bug fixes
* code reformatting (the source is much more readable now).
Some of the removed things may need to be reintroduced, but that's what
development is about. Goal is to hear what features people want and to
get things going again.

First thing I would do, would be releasing current git tree as
screen-4.1 also opening separate version 4 branch, only for bug fixes
so distributions have something recent to base their packages on.
Next step would be merging my 'devel' branch into master and start
developing version 5.

Comments, suggestions, alternative solutions?
