If we implement a font cache in the future it could. Also that extra
memory is used to allow scrollback. We could break up the size of the
region. Have it a*2^n+b*2^(n-1)+c*2^(n-2)+... = 2.5 MB. Isn't math grand

MS: (n) 1. A debilitating and surprisingly widespread affliction that
renders the sufferer barely able to perform the simplest task. 2. A disease.
