Thanks for the direction. I git cloned the newest screen source tree,
and read part of the code (comm.c, process.c).

It seems that the undocumented command `layout' has some arguments:
  layout new                        # to create a new layout
  layout title                      # to show the current layout title
  layout title "new title"          # to set the current layout title 
  layout next
  layout prev
  layout select

But, in my tests later, I was not able to differentiate a layout from
a normal window.

Is there architectural documents about screen? It would be helpful if
someone wants to get a deeper view in a quick way.
