For example I'd like to have 'logfile flush 0' without needing to depend on any screenrc file.  It's often nice for programmatic use from make/scripts to disable rc files and pass everything explicitly.

The -X option doesn't work for me, says No screen session found.
I didn't find a way to create a background screen session, background it, then send a command to it (and that seems like a pretty roundabout way to get the desired effect).
