actually, there's a limitation with this. If I am in a window which contains a remote shell, then I have to switch to a window which has a local shell. Not a big deal but a lot of my shells are remote. Having screen handle the alias would allow it to work irrespective of the context.
If you mean something that you could type after Ctrl-A colon, then I suppose you could have some sort of alias inside screen that would map to a new window command followed by a stuff command. That might be useful to some folks. But there's no such thing ATM (not AFAIK anyway).
But if you mean just typing it at the shell prompt, I imagine it wouldn't be practical for screen to try to intercept that before the shell got hold of it.
