I veto that idea on grounds of over-complexity.
Okay, how's this for a compromise. I redesign ncurses-base so it includes two
xterm entries. One is "xterm", which is what's currently "xterm-old" in
ncurses-term. The other is "xterm-debian", which is the new one. I ask the
debian X maintainer to hack xterm so it defaults to TERM=xterm-debian, perhaps
only when running a local shell. (M.E.: Is this possible?)
I think this should be acceptable to everyone. Now all I have to do is come up
with a working rxvt entry, and we're set. :-P
