my absolute pet-peeve about CLI workflows is that SSH doesn't just send the relevant terminfo file along.

there's probably some historical reason terminfo files are expected to exist on the target system rather than just bundling it into the SSH TTY allocation request, but I seriously wonder how hard it would be to extend the SSH protocol to support automagic terminfo sending.

"TERM=xterm-256color ssh blah" is getting old

@klardotsh Tbh why should terminfo exist in the first place... *grumbles about Plan 9 drawterm vs curses*
