I agree, we should decide whether features like scrollback, "halt",
or reflowing belong in st or not. I personally like the idea of
having them, as they're the only features I need of screen, and I
would be keen to generally not need to run it but rely on my terminal
for those functions.

But I know in the past scrollback has been rejected as "out of
scope" for st, with the recommendation of using screen or tmux.
