I think the discussion I wished to have, was whether there was agreement
that in all cases we would wish the mouse sequences to go to the filter,
rather than the application. I would think that in many cases, one would
 wish the reverse (say if the application is vim, and the filter doesn't
get mouse sequences).

In order to be done right, it might be necessary for screen to determine
which tty the mouse-tracking sequence was sent on (app's or filter's).

OTOH, a case might be made that none of this applies when the filter
spec has "." as the first character. I'm not confident enough in my
knowledge/experience with filters to make such a judgment, which is why
I wanted to discuss it. :)
