Python xterm


I am getting annoyed at the lack of good xterms on Linux. Gnome-terminal is very slow, it's not smart enough to skip ahead, just keeps doing the screen updates. I've been using PowerShell lately, but it's kinda krusty. What I want is an xterm I can hack, written in Python.

Shouldn't be too hard. Build it on GTK or whatever. The hardest bit is translating escape codes into screen updates.

Some things I'd like to see, of varying plausibility:

Any takers?
