I checked the new version of menu. Yes, we will need to rewrite
/etc/menu-methods/menu.h by hand to use sensible-x-terminal-emulator
with menu. *Untimely*. I lost one reason, one of the largest reasons,
to adopt diversion of xterm...
Anyway, sensible-x-terminal-emulator will stop to divert xterm
sooner or later. The diversion is only for demonstration.
(Some other packages may have direct calling against xterm...)
By the way, 0.04 had a bug around diversion mechanism. I built
version 0.05. It is available at:
It will be available also in Debian JP archive in a day.
