Several years ago I wanted to add to screen a patch adding the sockdir
option run-time configuration option and status option. Maybe they could
be included in some form?

sockdir local|shared
        shared means that the sockets directory may be shared between
        various hosts and screen -wipe command will NOT wipe non-local
status [ top | up | down | bottom ] [ left | right ]
        The status window by default is in bottom-left corner. This
        command can move status messages to any corner of the screen.
        top is the same as up, down is the same as bottom.

Status covering left side, especially bottom left is very annoying
because it covers the prompt and e.g. with visual bell I have to wait to
see the contents beind this visual signal. The distributions compile the
default status position. I used to recompile but it is tedious. I would
be much easier just to keep the favourite settings in the configuration

The patches are in
The last tested one is screen-4.0.2-rzm2.diff .
screen-4.0.3-rzm2.diff and screen- are
regenerated from screen-4.0.2-rzm2.diff but not yet tested.
