Not at the moment. It is also not easy to implement, screen would
have to send the file discriptors of the windows from the old session
to the new one. Unix domain sockets may provide this functionaltity.

A related feature I'd love to see implemented some day is the ability
to import a non-screen process into screen. For example, I might start
a compilation or a download in a normal shell, realize I have to go
somewhere, and want to detach it for later monitoring through screen,
but if I didn't have the forsight to start it in screen in the first
place, I can't do that now.
