For a while, I tried fiddling with various x-terminal-emulators and
getting a decent font; hampering things is that Etch installes UTF by
default so I'm en_CA.UTF-8 which means that many emulators mess up line
drawing used by, eg. mc and mutt.
Since I had real work to do, I just installed xfce4-terminal since I can
configure everything from menus. While to install it brings in more
libs than rxvt, when running it only uses a bit more and it has tabs
that don't add to the memory footprint.
