I tend to agree with this.

There are of course some custom tweaks - for example, the "status bar"
in GNU Screen. The criterion for adding this, though, was that it makes
Screen (marginally) easier to use and shows the "multiple windows" idea
more clearly. A default Screen config is a "So what?" experience unless
you read the docs :)

Perhaps we need an "Advanced Edition" INX?
