Is this true? I couldn't get it to work in a Linux console and I can't see how
it could work outside the context of X (xt-mouse knows nothing about gpm).

The original author (Per Abrahamsen) says:

;; The xterm mouse escape codes are supposedly also supported by the

However, I have updated t-mouse.el for Emacs 22, which does work in a Linux
console. If anyone is in touch with Ian T Zimmermann and can persuade him to
sign papers, then this file can be included in the Emacs distribution.
