    How 'bout the patch below which allows terminal-init-$TERM to be autoloaded
    and/or defined elsewhere than in term/$TERM.el (e.g. it can be defined in
    ~/.emacs, or a single term/foo.el can define both terminal-init-foo-bar and
    terminal-init-foo-baz, ...)?

Wouldn't it be better to have this loop before the "load" loop? (1)
Or if it's after only loop if the "load" loop didn't find a terminal

Doing it the (1) way would DTRT for the multi-tty branch, it would
avoid loading the terminal file iff the corresponding terminal-init-
function is defined, which would happen after connecting the first
time from a terminal type.
