Dunno really, just an option I always used to set on the cmdline of
Eterm, and noticed wasn't on gnome-terminal. I use loads of colours
with vim, mutt, ls etc, and don't like my lightblue etc being
over-struck. This patch fixed it for me, but its probably a very
personal thing, and so feel free to discard it ;-)

Yuck. Termcap is obsolete (officially) and terminfo is pretty ugly
syntax-wise. I didn't think it a very UI-oriented solution. I thought
the idea was to do as much as possible through the gnome ui, leaving
textfile-editing for more obscure stuff.

Anyway the patch doesn't go as far as I wanted. It disables
overstriking altogether, I just want to prevent its use to create
colours. Text specifically emboldened should look that way.

I guess terminfo is my only choice.
