Some time ago, I took the time to do this too, and I added all the
capabilities you have in both your termcap entries in wsvt25.
So: "It's fixed in -current, and in 1.6."

There was some discussion about this and some voices insisted that it
stay vt100 for easier compatibility with other systems that don't know
about wsvt25.  Not that I agree in this regard, but it doesn't matter
too much -- it's easy to set it for yourself.
