> What's the handiest way for me to get a terminal to test with?

The simplest/quickest:

Get VTE from
  git clone git://

Compile the usual autoconf way (./configure or ./; make). Feel
free to pass --enable-vala=no or --disable-vala or something like this if
you're having trouble with vala.

Start as ./src/testvte -- You'll get the underlining experience, plus the
URL printed to stderr on right-click.

The full featured (with the usual gnome-terminal UI and Ctrl+click opening
the link in browser):

Carefully choose --libdir for VTE, compile and install (make install). Then
repeat the same with gnome-terminal (taking care of --prefix and
--libexecdir), making sure pkgconfig finds the new VTE. (I personally just
install both packages to the location of the distro's package, overwriting
those files. In case of unexpected unlikely trouble, the worst case I open
an xterm and reinstall the distro packages from there. Otherwise it's just
too much pain always pointing to the test version.) Then quit all
gnome-terminal windows at once and restart it (or start the server and
client with a different app-id as shown at (without the gdb bits)).
