I feel the same way.
Even the scrollback patched into St doesn't seem right (unless there's some
other patch, I don't remember).
Tmux fixes that, and.. well.. I prefer using Tmux, and it's pre-installed on
OpenBSD, so what the hell?

multiple cut-n-paste buffers? Could be one of more important things I
discovered this month!

Have some Unix!
