screen's console

When I run screen in X, I have a shortcut on my gnome toolbar which runs
a shell script which sets up a bunch of xterms which run screen, which
constitutes my IDE - Unix is most definitely my friend here.

So the xterms "-e screen" option means they do not run their own login
shell, saving some resources.

Is it possible to have screen start similarly on a Linux console
"terminal", without first having to log in?

Thinking about it, you need to log in at some point, and when I run
screen, I don't re-login. That might have something to do with:

# make the shell in every window a login shell
shell -$SHELL

in my .screenrc - so the question is, am I running an unnecessary login
when I run screen from Linux's console, as opposed to from xterms
"console"/ terminal?
