Take a look at Expect. It has macro-recording (autoexpect), and you
can control multiple screen sessions (or anything ttyish). It's my
goto for problems like this. Adding a convenience extension for screen
wouldn't be to bad. As John B. suggested, just "stuff" your commands
into tcl procedures and use Expect to interact with Screen.
