    Well, just because it is easy does not make it the right thing to  
    do.  I am not an xterm developer, but I would question why xterm  
    would have to take one specific environment variable it to account,  
    invented by another terminal emulator, to solve a potential problem  
    in Emacs.

The problem can affect any program that looks at COLORTYPE.
It is not specific to Emacs.  This change would make xterm work correctly
with rxvt.  Can you think of another way to do that?

      Also, this is not xterm specific, how about the Gnome and  
    KDE terminal emulators?

I guess so.  Unless rxvt can be changed instead.
