	Heh, true enough. :)

	However, in the case of PCVT, the owner of the machine can customize
those elements (color, cursor type, etc); in this case, the reset string
can't really include that type of information, as the next time the terminal
is reset, it nukes the existing user customization.

	Or do you mean that a reset string in this case would merely tell 
PCVT to return the terminal to the state programmed by the user with scon,
etc.. ? Now that would make sense. Hmm.
