Yes, I need this for xskat, which does multiplayer games via an IRC
server. It runs under X but needs a terminal for the player to type
IRC commands. Pretty unusual situation, I guess :)

I think I'll just use -e for now, since IIRC all terminals supported
that, but it would be nice if that was added to the policy...
