I think you should define what "switch contexts" means to you. to me
its clear that terminal emulation is one context and terminal
rendering is another, and having it all mangled together does not make
it one context (unless your context is less concrete and refers to
terminals in general) and forces more context switching than sorting
it out into two different buckets (files w/e) in fact because its
separated i would argue that its easier to "see the forest from the
trees" and prevent bloat.
