It would be nice if there was tab completion during the window select (') operation.  If I have two windows that have the first few characters the same, and I enter just those common characters and press ENTER, Screen takes me to the first matching window. It would be nice if pressing TAB either expanded the window name, or showed me a list of matching names to allow me to finish my selection.
