    OK, amended patch #2 attached: xterm+256color block now removes
setb/setf. I was unable to locate on Google the report by
Emanuele Giaquinta that triggered xterm #209 patch, so I don't know what
the issues in this app were (just color inversions?). And so:

 - Is it sure not a single app uses exclusively set[bf]?

 - Would it make sense to remove set[bf] from all 8/16 colors entries
already having seta[bf]?

    I see: Thanks. And as most terminals having a <BackTab> key send
this very sequence, most Screen users can make use of it without effort.
Other terminals may need a specific screen.$TERM entry with their own
kcbt, but they are a minority.

Bye!    Alain.
