Traditional termcap can't. We do, however, have t_getent, t_getnum,
etc, which do appear to fully support using multiple terminal types.
(Even traditional termcap can support use of multiple terminals, though
not multiple types; most functions return strings, and the one that
doesn't - tputs - takes a callback to handle output.)
We've had the t_* suite of calls since, at least, 1.4T. (I knew
sticking with 1.4T would be good for soemthing someday. :)
