"xterm" is not a single thing. Some versions of xterm do, perhaps.

That might even be true. But, even if it is, xterm still lacks much
that my terminal emulator provides. Perhaps the most significant is
multi-display (and no-display) support, but there are others (such as,
as of last time I looked, which admittedly was a while ago, correctly
working wrap, a blinking cursor, and Mac-style pointer hiding).
I've considered trying to add some form of Unicode support to mine.
Perhaps someday I'll find the round tuits, but it is not a high
priority for me. (I'd also need Unicode fonts; something is wrong with
either the iso10646 fonts I have or the X server I have, because they
do not work together.)
