I don't think you will.

The last one.  If you can think of any way to improve on that it would
be interesting to hear it but I think that for most people using
elinks (and every other console app they use) in one screen session to
handle the c&p from one app to another works just fine.  I have been
using screen for so long that I didn't even learn that you could copy
and paste with a mouse in elinks until recently and I still seldom do
it since screen works so nicely for my needs.
