I don't think there is any real practicle difference anymore. However, from
memory, I don't think the original 'term' was ansie compliant,. Now, I
think the only difference is in how it generates the term buffer names -
ansi-term probably handles multiple terminals a little easier in that I
don't think you hve to rename an existing one before you open another
one. Apart from that, I think they are now both the same.
