Hence many users who don't use Gnome won't use gnome-terminal.
Do you really want to use a name which will make users think
"Guile Diskutils ... nope, not for me, I don't use Guile".


PS: Also `xterm` indeed only works with the X Window System (contrary to
gnome-terminal which works fine in this here XFCE session).
