Remember that screen adds $STY to your environment, so you can test for

if [ -z "$STY" ]; then
    exec screen -dR

which would exec screen, attach to an already running or start a new
screen if you aren't already in one.  No problem there...

Fantastic!  I've been looking for such a test.

You wouldn't by chance have a translation for that into "csh",
would you?  Also, with "csh", am I right to assume the test
would go in ".login"?

Yeah, I guess .login would be the correct place for csh. Long time since I used csh (or tcsh), but I guess something like:

if ("$STY" != "") then
   exec screen -dR
