Thanks for the review!
It took me a while to repost, due to Christmas/New Year vacations.

These patches introduce rather separated (no new interface or similar),
but useful features. They are implemented in separated code chunks making use
of existing screen functions/API. Therefore the code changes are
just some lines.
Would be great to see the patches getting applied.
