Hi Joseph,

All of these are good, try them out and see what you like.

I’ve been using the scrollback patch for local sessions recently
(terminal muxers inside window muxers seems overkill, and dvtm is
a _lot_ of code for just scrollback). If you need session management
and terminal muxing, there’s nothing better than dvtm/abduco. If all
you need is scrollback in a windowing environment, just patch st.
