One reason, it seems to me, is to confine the action to one dvtm/tmux pane
when selecting a multiline region of text. st has no awareness that its
window has been divided into more than one pane and therefore cannot wrap the
selection at pane boundaries.

dvtm already handles mouse clicks to select the active pane, fwiw.
