Yo Greg

I've never done this before either, but after another minute of
squinting at the manpage I tried this:

  $ screen -X at 4 stuff asdf

and it seems to work fine. I.e. asdf shows up on the commandline of
window number 4.

Do read the manpage. The whole manpage. Closely. There's probably a
better way that I missed. E.g. the 'process' command looks promising.
