Newcons was the nickname used for vt(4) during its development. PRs
etc. ought to use just "vt" (and the Wiki page ought to be renamed).

Because it does show up in mailing list archives and some PRs I have
no objection to including it in the glossary, but we should be clear
that it's an unofficial nickname.
