There seems to be no least common denominator terminfo that can be called "xterm" that satisfies the gnome-terminal, konsole, and xorg xterm camp all at the same time. I believe that the best solution may
be to leave the xterm definition in the terminfo as stock, and set the
TERM to point to a more specific entry, if one can be deduced, during
term shell initialization.



Which then leads to all sorts of annoying bogus nonsense when you log
into older systems that don't have this "new" entry.


Good point. In that case, leaving TERM alone if COLORTERM is not set is better.
