Negatory on a perforated windscreen. Simply use a couple of coat hangers to
make a support for a MSR windscreen.
1-Cut 2 equal lengths of coat hanger wire
2-Wind both around the canister/stove joint, then wrap together, on both
ends, to make a star.
3-Set MSR windscreen on top of the 4 spokes. [I will have to demonstrate
this at ADZPCTKO, I guess. Shees!]

It's definitely lightweight and easy to use, but reliability becomes an
issue if you use a standard solid aluminum wind-screen.
Canister stoves tend to get really, really hot, and, if you add a wind
screen to mix, you can melt the little plastic thingy that shuts off the
fuel flowing the canister.
A friend of mine had this happen twice over the course of his thru-hike.
Snowpeak suggests a perforated wind screen, rather than the standard, solid
