I take it this doesn't just use SIXELS?  Why not?

OTOH, if it does, IIRC it ought to work on VT3xx, VT4xx, and maybe even
VT125.  I can't remember if the 125's graphical capabilities included
SIXELS or not -- the other things I'm *sure* did were the DEC inkjet

Also, Ultrix' DECterm enhanced xterm did this -- it basically emulated
a vt-anything-you-might-care-for.  Anyone know if it lived on into
the Digital Unix era?
