It's possible that a screen-clear should push the previous screen contents into the scrollback, rather than losing it completely.
SGT, 2003-03-07: Thanks to Richard Boulton for a patch doing just this. In addition, his patch also arranges that when an application switches to the alternate screen, the previous contents of the primary screen are temporarily pushed into the scrollback, so you can check what you were doing just before starting the application. When the primary screen is restored, those lines come back out of the scrollback.
Audit trail for this wish.
