Also remember if you accidentally start screen B with the same escape key
as screen A you can always use the screen command-mode to change the screen
B escape key without exiting screen B.

Ala: ^a a : escape ^Ss

I enjoy
^s as the 'inside' escape key since it's right next to ^a and doesn't do 
(these days). Just remember defflow off in your .screenrc

This used to
drive me nuts every time I'd forget to invoke screen with a different escape
key when ssh-ing, so finally I just put aliases in my .zshrc for each:

alias sc="exec screen -RD" # regular

alias scr="exec screen -RD -e'^Ss'"
# remote
