Yes. Eventually we should add tunables, but first I want to get it
working correctly. Unfortunately there is a big amount of complexity
when switching to xterm. I think it may be better to switch when we're
moving to UTF-8 as well.

If we want to switch to xterm without having UTF-8, I suspect we'll
break lots of things related to character maps, box drawing, etc.

But at least having a kernel tunable would be nice. I'll see what I can
