I think that it would be great if someone took xterm's core engine, cleaned out the junk (tektronic mode, etc), and made it into a library (with a small program to take command line arguments and run a program attached to the tty). I suspect that having other terminal emulators be based on replacing the widget set in this, rather than starting from scratch, would give much better results (while still producing scroll bars that people these days know how to use and menus people can find).
