Dear Screenists:

I have my terminals (formerly xterm, now gnome-terminal) multiplexed
with screen.  I use only two screens for each terminal window, otherwise
things get too confusing.  I like to think of a terminal window as a
piece of paper which I can turn turn over, using either front or back;
thus the screens are titled "Front" & "Back".  My question is: how may
I convince screen to give me a slightly differently colored background
for each screen instance?  I would like to know at a glance whether I
am writing on the Front or the Back of my paper.

        if [ "x$TERM" ne "xscreen" ]; then
            screen -c $HOME/.screenrc.xterm

        screen -t Back
        screen -t Front
