Well, you just need the right setup. Try compiling screen with -DHOLE,
for example.

All the clipping is done in layer.c, the raw output functions
are in display.c.

I'm against changing to ANSI, as we have prototypes you don't
get extra functionality and screen won't complile with some older
compilers anymore. It's the same thing as throwing out support for
old OSes, it's just a bunch of ifdefs that doesn't hurt much.
