Bug#1505: setterm is missing

Costa D Rasmussen:
   I wish we had setterm.  I noticed it was missing and thought I must
   be ignorant about how to do without it.

   What's the drill here?  Do we need to lobby the author, write a clone?

setterm was written by Ted Ts'o.  He thought it was such a trivial
program that it didn't need a copyright.

As of today, he knows that the lack of a copyright is a distribution
problem.  I don't know for sure, but I think he plans on releasing it
with a redistributable copyright.
