program: screen - caption

Hello everyone,

I have been using the program 'screen' for a while now, but I wanted to make it feel a bit better. So after some manual browsing I changed the caption to:
caption always "%-Lw%{= BW}%50>%n%f* %t%{-}%+Lw%< %=| %c"
This gave me a nice bar at the bottom of the screen with a list of all open screens. However... each screen automatically gets a name, and I do not agree with this name... (that name would be 'bash')

So, most of you would now say something like: 'just change the name already!', and I did... but after a few screen creations and removals this became a bit tiering...

So this is my question:
How can I make the caption assign the screen name to the command that is currently being executed in that particular screen?
