Because it brings benefits to all users, not just users of seyon. I 
recently went (again) through experimenting with different terminal 
emulators and it was pretty annoying that all my keyboard shortcuts 
(based on x-terminal-emulator!) didn't work because one or the other 
wouldn't support some command-line options.
