Having a static table (for all terminals) is clearly nonsense for tparm.c, 
since the purpose of this file is to interpret a terminfo file. If we embed 
binary code, there is no reason to have such interpretation code.

I think you know this, but GRUB Legacy uses this way. For now, I think this is 
the best way, since most terminals are vt100-compatible, and the user does 
not have to do anything in this case.
