You're right, sorry, my mistake. I realised after sending that that
`tcvt` creates one long terminal as opposed to 4 terminal panes. That's
useful behaviour that I'm surprised there isn't a tmux
command for. I could see myself using it to monitor logs and such.

I tried to whip something up using `copy-mode`, which allows the reading
of another pane's history using using the flags `-t` and `-s`. I
couldn't get it to work, but I'm sure it would be possible, if not easy,
to make some kind of special .tmuxrc. Using tmux rather than inventing a
new terminal emulator would be worth it (in my opinion) in preventing
strange printing behaviour.
