Oh, fine. Here I was, setting us up for a fine emacs-vs-vi flamewar, and
you try to start "emacs-vs-screen"?! Gawd. ;-)
Thankfully, it seems others are providing tinder for that.
You have, however, touched on one of my pet peeves about screen. A lot of
the default bindings clash with common readline keystrokes. ctrl-a being
the worst of them!
