You don't have to redo the window drawing code for this, it already
supports it. It's just the user interface stuff and the resize
handling that would need some work.

Already there. Unfortunatelly many applications compare $TERM
to "xterm" to check for mouse support and won't work within screen.

Not easy, as screen must keep track of the position of the window
name in the hardstatus line to make it work. Doable, but maybe
not worth the hassle. How do the other list members feel about this?
