When you start an xterm, TERM is set to xterm; why not test for that?
The trouble with using different executables is that they will only
get run when the user chooses.  I have found ae popping up unexpectedly
after I have removed elvis.  Because I didn't choose to load it, it came
up in its default state.

If someone manages to get an xterm where TERM is set to something different,
it won't work, but it seems a bit unreasonable for anyone to do such
a thing.
