Thanks for the patches, scrollback is probably the most requested
dvtm feature. You introduced a separate buffer for the scrollback
data, did you consider allocating more space for the main buffer and
just adjusting the scroll_{top,bot} pointers and using them in
madtty_draw to draw only the currently visible area?

Another detail, it would be nice if the buffer size could be specified
with an additional parameter to madtty_create. This could then be used
to set the scrollback buffer size from a command line option.

I need to get some sleep now, i will later take a look at the second
