Not really. Some specific case examples:
- There wasn't anything but R5 for the hp300 port for a long time, and
there still isn't a functional R6 server. I suspect there are a bunch
of hp300 folks still using R5.
- There are still vendors shipping R5-based systems, e.g. the HP 3070
Series II in-circuit testers (which are based on HP-UX 9.x, which in
turn has R5).
In any event, do I understand that the current XF86-centric termcap entry
does _not_ work with a stock R6 or R6.3 xterm? Has anything significant
changed between the R5 and R6 XC xterms?
