As far as I understand when users sees very long lines which are folded
inside st it is much more intuitive to select the whole line by triple
click. Right now by triple click st selects only visible part of long line.

Probably my patch may be conditional by some variable in config.h file.
Thus we can either keep old behavior for users prefer that or add "triple
click selects whole line" functionality to other users.

Very base use case: when we run long third party makefile it is very
convenient to select whole line from its output in order to paste it to
command line later, probably with some modifications.
