You are right - at least for now. If we decide how to handle both X and
console copy/paste I can code it. 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.

What you think?
