As a happy use of rxvt-unicode-ml (thanks Zomb!), I am very annoyed at times by softwares that have 'xterm' hardcoded. Obviously, I report these as bugs to have it changed to x-terminal-emulator, but then again, I consider 'xterm' to be somewhat of a generic name by now that I think it should be put under control of the alternatives system. The procedure would be to upload a new 'xterm' package which moves /usr/bin/xterm to /usr/bin/xterm.real and introduces /usr/bin/xterm as alternatives symlink in addition to x-terminal-emulator. Then, progressively, the other x-terminal-emulator providers can start to add xterm to their postinst scripts. What do you think of this proposal. Are there any string points *against* it? -- Please do not CC me when replying to lists; I read them! .''`. martin f. krafft <firstname.lastname@example.org> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, and user `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
