If there is no feedback on this subject I will decide on my own. To start the discussion here is my idea: we can make not one (+mouse_handling) but two mutualy exclusive options: +xterm_mouse_handling and +gpm_mouse_handling. The first option would mean getting mouse events from xterm and using X copy buffer, so it would allow copying/pasting to/from other X apps. The second option would cause getting mouse events from gpm and using gpm copy buffer. Compiling X and gpm support into tn5250 would require linking with additional libraries, but we can add some configure options to turn mouse support off and allow compiling without X or gpm.
