What do people think of this idea: make call-process and start-process
supply the values of the envvars TERM and DISPLAY from two variables,
term-environment-variable and display-environment-variable,
if they are not specified in process-environment.
These two variables would normally be frame-local, and in each frame,
they would have the right values for that frame's terminal.

This way, Lisp programs that bind TERM explicitly will work right.
However, in the future they could bind term-environment-variable and
display-environment-variable, instead of fussing with

Would someone like to check whether this gives good results all
around, for the Lisp code that operates on the environment?
