This is something I thought about a while ago; I even considered allowing a "message box" which could be separated from the map into another window (different from the message recall in that it only showed the current messages). I stopped thinking about it when UnAndrew did his easy_more option, which allows messages to overlap onto the map.

Any other opinions on all this?

That would be fine, too (it's pretty similar to permanently allocating more than one line). But it's not in vanilla?

P.S. I found this screenshot, is this current?

The one thing I'd change from this is make it more compact by allowing individual messages to break across lines (breaking at word boundaries).

No. AFAIK, it's in Unangband and FAangband.

Yes, that's it exactly.

That sounds like a good idea.

Nope, but it should be.
