I'd extend that to suggest that most terminal emulators support the
majority of VT220 sequences, not just the VT100 subset.

I don't know about this, although a quick test does appear to suggest
that lxterm does not support \x9b as an alternative to \x1b\5b.

lxterm supports blink. PuTTY (on [at least] Windows) also supports blink -
just not by default.
tput blink; echo hello; tput sgr0
hello <- this flashes in lxterm

The PuTTY FAQ seems to claim that it's either implemented everything
or else documented what it hasn't implemented. This might be a good
