I support this proposition. It may be "troublesome" for programs which
depend on terminal size, but if you think about it, ncurses
applications and the like refresh when the terminal resizes and are not
affected. Countless times I resized the master here and lost a decent
amount of terminal output due to that.

As discussed earlier, I would also support a ring-buffer-based
scrollback for st. I hate using tmux and the like and it's a price
worth paying.

With best regards
