I actually have mostly working code for this in MirPorts and am willing to contribute it.

The one thing I didn’t get to work for myself is to also auto-detect when re-attaching to a running session (the printing / detecting is done inside the screen tab then instead of on the tty before the screen is attached).

I’d need to fiddle it out from a much larger patch, so please just contact me (tg ~at~ mirbsd ~point~ org) if desired.
