Hooray!  Out of morbid curiosity, what would be the implications of
converting screen to use ncurses (ignoring the workload, of course) -
could it be done?  I think it'd improve portability and reduce the
code base a bit.... and would give you the capability to handle V/H
splits easilly, and even "floating" windows or something....

One feature I was thinking about a while back would be a multiline
hardstatus... I use the hardstatus line for *alot* of stuff... cpu
temp, battery levels, scaling freq, weather, and all that jazz -
basically I use it in the same way most people use
torsmo/conky/desklets/gkrellm.  It'd be nice to be able to have 2 or 3
lines for hardstatus info (I have a small font, so it's not a screen
real-estate issue), and that way I could add some little meters to the
line too:
Battery: [XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX     ] (where the X have a green background
and the rest is default).
