[dev] st features that'd be nice

I just read about terminator
<http://software.jessies.org/terminator/>, and thought a
couple of its features sounded worth stealing (both require
scrollback to be implemented):

* Logging - logs of terminal sessions can be saved. It only
  makes sense to do this on command, rather than automatically
  (as terminator does). Once scrollback exists, this becomes
  pretty easy (just save that).

* Find - search through scrollback (maybe using regex).

Another nice thing to have would be:

* Smart reflowing of text on window resize. I think OSX's
  terminal emulator might do this.

None of these should take much code, I think. I'd like to
add these myself, but I'd like it even more if someone else
