I think having an separate scrollback buffer for each vc would be nice,
but as Axel already said, it's easyer to simpy use screen.
If this is added, IMHO, a few config options could be nice then:
1.) As Axel sayed, I think an config option for disabling vc switching and
2.) If it's feasible: vc switching without scollback
3.) The current state of art.
4.) Full vc switching and scrollback
5.) A changeable Limit how many lines are remembered.
Compilcated task doning that all, likely resulting in more questions about
this, so I don't request it all.
As I'm not a console developer, others likely may know better. :-)
