Regarding easy access to the scroll back buffer I recently implemented
a copymode for dvtm which should simplify this.

Checkout the relevant branch from the git repository or download

Then launch dvtm, generate some output, then press MOD+v (i.e. "CTRL+g v"
in the default config) to enter copymode. You should now be able to
navigate with PgUp/PgDown (without special prefixes).
There are also some basic vi-style keybindings (h,j,k,l,^,$,g,G,M)
and a simple search function accessible with "/" supported.
Start a selection with "v", copy with "y" and then paste
with MOD+p. Check out the manual page for a complete reference.

Some further testing would be welcome.
