Hmm, will have to think about this alot.... Have been using the "worms"
test program from ncurses to test things. That contains alot of "goto
X,Y; Plot a Char; goto X,y; Plot a Char, etc" So that could be several
tens, hundreds of K of data for a single screen, if the user was to let
it run.... Because it doesn't technially scroll the screen....
