How about '%N' to show the count of the total number of windows, with '-' qualifier to show the count of the windows in the current group only (if the window doesn't belong to any group, then the qualifier will not do anything, and the count of total number of windows will be displayed)?

It would be nice to show total number of currently open windows w/o their names and flags, something like "0/5 zsh ..." , where 0 - is current window's number, and 5 - total number of open windows.

Showing their names and flags occupies too much space if one wants to incorporate applications hardstatus line into that of screen.
