because "linux" (console), "vt220" and "xterm" definitions are actually rather
different in subtle ways, and stuff doesn't always work perfectly
between them.

To those who are thinking about colours, please remember to set both
foreground and background colors.  YOU have no idea what my background
colour is.  It's not always "white"
(color-ls got this wrong for along time, vim still does)
