I use ctrl-t for screen and have never run into any conflicts with other

I regularly use for other applications:
  ctrl-a (move to start of line in bash and emacs)
  ctrl-g (what line am I on? in vi)
  ctrl-z (background process)

That said, I think my vote would be to stick with ctrl-a as it is in
screen documentation everywhere and even expert users will expect it to
be the default.

I will set my own keymappings in screen.
