    I hope they fix weston-terminal. It is useless for compilation or any other long-running command that makes a lot of output over time: If you forget yourself and scroll up to look at something while more output is coming, you get output salad. It seems like it doesn't understand the concept of appending to the scrollback buffer – it wants to write in the visible area or above. As a proper easter egg, when that has happened, you suddenly get to scroll infinitely in both directions, it gets super-disorientating, and when it's properly messed up, you don't even see huge output like that from dmesg – trying to find the prompt again feels like trying to find the Sun from outside the Milky Way (for those who have played with Celestia).
