9term on my Linux laptop is kind of cool and I'd like to play with it
more. However, it doesn't play nicely with standard ncurses apps.
Anybody got a termcap/terminfo entry for it? Since I run Debian, I
installed my copy from a deb package I found floating around the ether.
It's version 1.6.6-5 (I know the "-5" refers to the package version, not
the application version).

Off Topic Question:

Anybody remember the UA (User Agent) sorta-text/sorta-graphic windowing
UI on the good old UNIXpc/7300/3B1 ? I may have been the only person
outside of AT&T who liked it and I still think it has some good ideas.
Anybody know if it was ever cloned or if the original source was
released? The latter isn't crazy: _some_ of the 3B1 source was released
to the community, but not necessarily all of it.
