How do I take advantage of these commands? I'm using c3270 (curses
based TN3270 client) inside screen and have a great need to be able to
select / copy / paste rectangle areas. I suppose I could bind a screen
command to the \e[ blah blah for each DECxxx but I'm not seeing how it
will allow me to physically start a rectangle selection, either..

If anyone has solved this, please give me a hand.. I've struggled with
this for about a year, and have all but given up.
