    An enhanced version of your entry is included in the official
terminfo database coming with Ncurses 5.6, since 2006-10-07, together
with some variations around (BCE or not, hardstatus or not, 16 or 256

"Enhanced"?  ;-)

This is great news.  Perhaps I won't have to keep my screen-256color
on a USB stick anymore.

Or 256 (or 88, which no one uses).

    Database surely deployed everywhere before second quarter 2038.

Right before time_t wraps.
