It should be enough to put "split" and "screen" commands in your
.screenrc (or in some other file that you call with "screen -c FILE")
and that correspond to the manual commands you'd have used.  (I
haven't seen a good way to "save" that from a running session, but
usually from a live session screen only knows that there are shells,
and not what's been run in them...)

defzombie will also be useful, to keep the layout when one of the
children dies, and let you hit a key to retry the connection.
