Currently many graphical terminals are very limited in its capabilites if
compared to terminal multiplexers. If features are introduced they often built
on top of their own implementation. This leads to many programs reinventing
screen like functionality. However this move is completely unnecessary if
screen would provide a mere C API for other programs. This is not something
only I imagined but was excessivly discussed on many forum threads and even
got its own GNOME wiki entry [1]. Especially notable is the bug report which
calls for such an API [2].
