FWIW, I use "screen -A -x -RR" as the DWIM screen commandline.

It attaches to a screen session if one exists, otherwise it starts up a
new session. (NOTE: b/c the screen cmdline parser is buggy, the order of
the options matters). Used in combination with a shell alias or wrapper
script, it becomes a simple way to always maintain a single screen
session on each host.
