Aha, that's great.  We should probably move picobsd's termcap in src/etc
and install it as `/etc/termcap.small' by default.  It is only 6 KB and

    # export TERMCAP='/etc/termcap.small'

is far nicer than trying to use vi, failing, and falling back on ed.

/me heads off to prepare a patch for review :-)
