[Grml] Some features may be dropped from GNU Screen in the future (including braille support)

I'd like to emphasize that the braille feature which is discussed about
here is *not* general braille access through brltty.

What is being discussed is the tiny braille support embedded in the
screen package, which only supports a few TeleSensory and TSI hardware
in a quite basic way, and which has not been developped or maintained
for years.  There is little wonder screen maintainers would rather
remove that part of the code: it is unmaintained, and brltty can already
access screen content another way, and is developped, maintained etc.
