As for Emacs, it supports xterm-style mouse input, both with and without

    xterm -e emacs -nw -f xterm-mouse-mode
    xterm -e screen emacs -nw -f xterm-mouse-mode

GPM only works when NOT using screen.  IIRC,

    openvt -sw -- emacs -f gpm-mouse-start
    openvt -sw -- screen emacs -f gpm-mouse-start  ## BROKEN

Furthermore, the documentation claims that GPM only works for one
terminal at a time, so emacs --daemon users will find it pretty useless.
