Bug#236589: xterm: Export scrollback buffer control to programs like screen.

Package: multi-gnome-terminal
Version: 1.6.2-3
Severity: wishlist

I saw today the screen did not use it's parent terminal's scrollback
features.  Screen for other reasons needs a copy of the scroll back buffer
so it has it's own buffer and control mechinisem.  It would be nice if
screen could open the control for the scrollback buffer, like other programs
do for the mouse.  This would let screen have the buffer and handel
screenupdates for scrollback requests made to xterm.  Screen would also need
to send size updates to the controle this could be handeled in the same way
as title bar updates, exept should only be permited if the scrollback
controle is open.
