It's been several months since I looked (well, I _could_ download the
source again...).  What I recalled was that Emacs' tparam() is used in
a few places that could be directed to the underlying tgoto() function -
if that tgoto() is not supplied by Emacs.  That was essentially what I
reported before.

I suppose so.  I'm not sure if it would handle the more complicated
expressions for color.
