Tried that now, and it works. It would be fine if it also worked; a)
when ECMAscript was compiled in and enabled, or, at least, b) if
ECMAscript was compiled in and disabled in the config.

Before: linux

After: screen.linux

I've experimented, but no luck so far. I use "No coloer (mono). It's
also the same after compiling without-sm-scripting.
