Make screen behave more like tmux

I am using tmux on pretty much all hosts i control but all-too-often i need to work on retarded hosts which only have screen installed.

I love to use ctrl-b because ctrl-a is the beginning of the line in default bash keybindings. Here are my changes in ~/.screenrc

# use ctrl-b as escape
escape ^Bb
# change title with ctrl-b - ,  (tmux-style)
bind , title
# sweet status bar
caption always "%{= wk} %-w%{= KW} [% %t] %{-}%+w %= | @%H | %l | %Y-%m-%d %c "
