hardstatus alwayslastline and xterms

I use screen with the following in /etc/screenrc:

  hardstatus alwayslastline
  backtick 1 1200 1200 whoami
  hardstatus string "address@hidden %c | %-Lw%{= BW}%50>%n* %t%{-}%+Lw%<"

This gives me a bar across the bottom which shows a list of windows and 
the currently active window is highlighted in blue, a simple tab bar.  I 
can't remember where I got the code from, quite possibly the default 

However, I have now started to use an xterm.  Without the status line my 
xterm title is changed to show me the current directory I'm in, what user 
I am (etc).  Some programs (portage in Gentoo, among others) use it to 
provide feedback on what they are doing.  With the line "hardstatus 
alwayslastline" this information is not output to the xterm title. 

Is there any way I can use both at once, having a tab bar at the bottom 
and relevant information in the xterm window title?  Or a 2 line status, 
one that portage (et al) can use and one for the tab bar?
