    terminfo: drop repeat-character capability from 'xterm-new' (2)
    * Drop all use cases, output is mis-generated in some situations
      (LANG and LC_CTYPE envs both unset, vi (nvi) a file with 0x0000000
      sequences in it).
      Frankly, its beyond stupid to even implement ansi sequences that were
      designed for an era of 1200 baud modems.
    * Add comment describing why ansi+rep was removed.
