The recent change in termcap that equates `xterm' to `xterm-xf86-v33'
does not work very well for me (NetBSD/sparc/X11R6.1). more and less
at least have trouble with stand-out and underline mode, and don't
reset the terminal properly upon exit.

I don't feel like figuring out right now what entries in `xterm-xf86-v33'
might induce this behaviour, but.. isn't there common set of capabilities
that all xterms can (or should) support and leaving it up to those
actually running XF86 v3.3 to take advantage of "their" termcap entry
if desired?
