In this case I don't agree with you guys. The size 80x24 is a very standard
size and I don't understand why the user could want another default size.
Remember that the user can pass parameters to st to select the initial
size of the terminal.
In my case 80 and 24 are more meaningful that if you use a symbolic name
(for example default_cols or default_rows), because they are values
that directly indicate me they are related to the default number of
columns and rows.
