Damned color xterms ...

Nope.  I tried both "setenv TERM vt100" and "set term=vt100", and ran
a top in the window.  In both cases, it came up with its header lines
in a color that didn't contrast well.  The actual process table  part
was  the  foreground color, so that was readable, but things like the
load average, mem and swap use were illegible.
