One of the features of screen is that you can disconnect from screen
and log out, log back in later and reconnect to the existing session.
Having it auto-start a new screen every time you log in could make that

If you want to start screen faster than having to type out 'screen' (or
'screen -r') after you log in, then learn to use the history features of
the bash shell.

When I log in, I hit ^R, then start typing screen, I usually don't have
to get farther than about sc before it has found the match and I just
hit return and I'm off.
