This is very true; however, I don't think terminfo is going to be
pulled up to -5 (let alone -4) and it's really not practical to try to
handle terminfo codes some other way there. Even if someone wanted to
spend time writing a translation table for terminfo capabilities,
realistically they wouldn't be likely to ever get around to it.
I suppose tput should exit 1 when asked for an unknown capability
though; would fixing that be sufficient?
