Amen.  One of the reasons I prefer to emulate a VTxxx is that the
Linux kiddies have a propensity, when they see 'xterm', to take
license to turn on every form of bling they can get their fingers
into, turning your terminal window into a Christmas tree.  Telling
the system you're on a vtxxx immunizes you from such nonsense.
