Re: x-terminal-emulator

isn't xterm the 'de facto' standard?  it would seem to me that any options
xterm understands ought to be supported by x-terminal-emulator.  If
a certain terminal emulater is not xterm compatible, it would be trivial to
provide an 'xterm compatibility wrapper', and have x-terminal-emulator point
to that.
