| $TERMCAP will not work
| tset -s just prints $TERM

$ tset -s
set noglob;                                                             
setenv TERM xterm;
setenv TERMCAP 

You mean it will only print $TERM from now on?

Will the database be imported in external? What is the license for it?
Hopefully not GPL...
