To each his own I guess.  I prefer one xterm with screen in it to a 
bunch of them.  With a bunch of them I find myself spending too much 
time doing window management.  With screen I can just space through them 
all quickly, or remember which session is which by number.

Since I run it in an xterm I still get the easy copy/paste/etc (provided 
I don't scrollback - that gets dicey with screen in an xterm).  To be 
honest, if I REALLY need to copy/paste boatloads of stuff I tend to 
redirect it into a file and just open it in a text editor.

Hmm - that sounds like a nifty utility - something that will grab the 
current screen's scrollback and dump it into a file or better still 
launch an editor of choice containing it (without any need to 
mark/copy/paste/etc from screen).
