[Gllug] screen and ssh challenge

Hey folks

I've been reading around the screen docs on a quest. A quest to have ssh
automagically set the screen title to the hostname (preferably not the
fqdn) of the machine I am ssh'ing to.
The reason being that I usually have over a dozen screen windows open
and ssh'd to various places, so it becomes quite hard to remember which
terminal I left one in.

Has anyone done such a thing before, or feel like they want to take on
the challenge of making it work? :)
