Thank you for pointing the problem.  That feature is for the use
of Emacs in the terminal emulator.  Emacs-w3m used to not make
the new buffer visible when a user followed a link which points
to a local file, refers to a mailto url, etc.  Is escreen
helpful also for that situation?  In other words, can escreen
users notice the new buffer created by emacs-w3m enters the
Emacs session?  Although I tried escreen a little, I couldn't
know how do I do for that.

The naming is bad.  It is meaningless for ordinary users, isn't

Well, can't it be replaced with window-system, (featurep 'escreen),
and so forth?  I think it is better to automate if possible.
