Comment:

> what's the point of using/having this screen library at all? Why/when
slang is [] superior?

that's actually a good question.
ncurses is theoretically a cleaner solution, because it doesn't come
bundled with a scripting language interpreter.
but issues like this (and #2837), #4096, and #4144 call this into
question.
so given that clearly nobody is fixing this, it may be more pragmatic to
simply commit to slang after all, and actually leverage that interpreter
(#4187).
