After screen is started, it is pretty much locked onto the started session. I would like to have a command to terminate the current session and connect to another existing session instead.

Currently the only method to connect to another session is by running "screen -x $id" within the current session, which will create a screen-within-screen, with the need for all the unpleasant ^A escaping.
