It's probably a function of whether your terminal
supports scroll regions.  If it does, then I imagine
screen should be able to configure scroll regions
and make use of them.  With scroll regions, the bandwidth
delta for a horizontal split should be zero or near 
zero.  Do a google search if you want to know more
about scroll regions.

Screen gurus:  Does screen make use of scroll
regions in this way?  Seems like it can and should.
