Description

/clear should clear the view, not the buffer.

The semantics I'm after are the same as gnome-terminal `clear` and irssi `/clear`.

Consider gnome-terminal:

$ cat some-large-file.txt.
  1. terminal is now filled with text, prompt at bottom of window
    $ clear
  2. prompt now at top of window
    <SHIFT+PgUP>
  3. You can now view the text that you previously cleared.

irssi is the ~same: after /clear, the screen contents are cleared but you can use PgUp to view the buffer.

I am not sure Gtk.TextView allows to scroll further than the allocated buffer but I will look into this.
