tput is described as "terminal capability interface".  "terminal capability"
is the long form of "termcap"  tput works with termcap, not terminfo.  setaf
is not a vaild termcap capbility.  termcap capabilities are two characters
long.  It appears that tgetstr(3) et al simply truncate capabilities that
are longer then two characters.  Will consider modifying tput to give an
error when somebody asks for a capability that isn't two characters long.
