Let's say you have the following scenario:

- start a shell in an rxvt
- in the shell, type "xterm& RET"
- in the xterm, start "emacs -nw"
- in the Emacs you just started, I expect that (getenv "COLORTERM") matches
  "\\`rxvt", so your code will wrongly think it's running in an rxvt whereas
  it's actually running in an xterm.

I'd rather output a warning telling the user that she should not use
TERM=xterm when running in an rxvt.
