That could work; but if we do it that way why not remove some code and
do the same thing for C-' (pop up prompt with :screen in it). Personally
I like the way screen currently does it, and also like only having to type
the name prefix.

Maybe :screen needs to be changed to :window, and :screen used to refer to
actual screens?  And then :title changed to :window-title, then add in
:screen-name.  Until its named, a screen doesn't exist as a referenceable
entity, so would have a struct that referred to the "current" screen, which
could be named or unnamed.  So if you have unnamed screen and you switch to
new one, you lose your unnamed one.

A "screen" is everything on the screen (in my hallucinating mind).  A "window"
can be anywhere on a screen.

Is there something wrong with having the same window displaying more than once
on the screen?  Is there a way for it to work like emacs where you can have
multiple views of the same window?  Probably not, X being what it is.  Be nice
if instead of going to that window where it already is on the screen, your 
window becomes the window you go to, and the frame where the window used to be
becomes whatever was last there, as when you hit C-t t.
