Bug Description

[Upstream feature request, not a bug!]

I sometimes need to search for something in the scrollback buffer, which I can do visually. However it would be nice to be able to 'grep' the text, or load it into an editor.

It would be nice to be able to save the scrollback buffer to a file for this purpose.
