While we have a mouse driver / mouse driver interface, this is only used to control Gcons. Console should expose a mouse interface to applications. This will allow console applications to be controlled with the mouse (e.g. select text, activate menu entries).

Merged in mainline,1807, console applications can receive different types of events. Currently we have keyboard and position events. Only position event currently generated by terminal widged / vterm is button press. It can be used to move text cursor in tinput (e.g. in bdsh) and in text editor. Click while holding shift selects text. Drag-to-select not implemented.
