The recorder takes a trace of characters received by the
terminal. Someone can easily reproduce a bug by replaying the trace
both on xterm and nterm. I don't think term has that feature.

For now it's only a vt100 emulator, I think it can become a xterm
emulator with a little bit of work.

It has a fixed size for now.
