Having a function terminal-init-screen in file screen-256color.el
doesn't make sense.  The function probably needs to be renamed to
terminal-init-screen-256color.  OTOH the file could probably be named
just term/screen.el

The matching algo documented in term/README means that in the TERM=screen-256color case, if there's no screen-256color.el, emacs falls back to screen.el ?

In that case, having the file called called screen.el and that function terminal-init-screen makes a lot of sense since the code Trent posted anyway reuses the bits of term/xterm.el which are intended to do the right thing for xterm vs. xterm-256color when xterm-256color falls back to xterm.el

=> So if that terminal-init-screen is used, calling it that and putting it in term/screen.el is for the best as far as I can see.
