[dev] [st] RFC halt function

Greetings comrades,

while trying to copy some stuff from iotop I came to the idea of having
some »halt« function in st. This is like the »halt« in 9term, where ev‐
erything will stand still but the terminal is working on the output in
the background.

Anyone has ever needed such a function and considers it worth to be
added to st?

The implementation details would be a temporary screen which holds the
current buffer copy. On a certain shortcut st would switch back to nor‐
mal mode.
