Terminus works fine. I have no issues with it, being it in st or anywhere else.

st seems pretty okay, quite usable.
My personal issues with it, preventing me from switching to it are:

    - the lack of a scrollback buffer, already mentioned
    - double-click-and-drag selection, like xterm has
      (st currently supports double-click word selection; implementing this
      should be no big deal... I might look at it)
    - vim in st with Solarized [1] colorscheme draws invisible text
      (this is quite strange; not sure where the problem is...)
