sure - I overlooked foot for some reason.

But the change that I'll make will be to use the building-block.

"xterm+sl-twm" is a building-block which I use for terminals
with this xterm-compatible title string feature,
which (since it has both tsl and TS) is designed to
allow migrating applications away from the incorrect use of tsl.

tsl without a parameter is incorrect.
TS has the same effect (no parameter) but is correct :-)
