As an emacs user I found that screen remapping ctrl-a was unacceptable. I
don't have much use for screen anymore, but when I did always used ctrl-z
instead of ctrl-a. If you think about it, it makes sense - ctrl-z is
usually used to suspend the current process, and what you're trying to do
with screen is suspend the current shell. Kind of.
