For me, I make sure to turn on the screen status bar.  Then you can see
how many nested sessions you have.  And then all you gotta remember is
sending a literal ctrl-a: "ctrl-a a".  Then you just need to count how
many times you hit the a by itself.

Of course, I was thinking it might be nice if the status bar would
somehow indicate when it had received a ctrl-a.  Then you just keep
hitting a until the proper status bar is lit up.  Hmm, maybe this
feature already exists; I'll have to look into it.
