Take a portable terminal, go out there and patch in manually.

I might regret this later, but until I recant:

This features several changes already, and a few more are pending.

It will be interesting to see where this goes. At the moment, for me personally, there's nothing in the changes to make me switch, but I hope there soon will be!

I wonder what feature(s) or changes would make it a compelling alternative for you?

I've got a few things queued up which are mostly to suit my tastes, but I've no idea what other people would be lured by..

Something I have long wished screen had is the ability to vertically split the screen. I have seen various patches for this but I don't know what the upstream status of this is.
Also, screen forgets my split setup when I detach and attach, although to be fair I haven't looked into this much and maybe there is a fix for it in the current screen.

Omari - the virtical split is integrated with my changes.

Saving and restoring layouts is probably a hard problem. I know the last time I saw it discussed the suggestion was "Use nested screens" which is suboptimal..

I'd love to see screen fixed so that multiuser screens work without making screen setuid root. That alone would get me to switch to tscreen.
Also, http://bugs.debian.org/407584 seems like a trivial fix that would make screen less broken in a modern UTF-8 world.

Anonymous - if $LC_ALL contains UTF-8 then "-U" doesn't need to be specified in tscreen.

A way to work with or like detachtty would be great, too. Then tscreen can be run inside or outside Emacs...
