If you are looking for a more featureful terminal-emulator than xvt, but one which still uses less swap space than xterm, consider rxvt.
Features of xterm which xvt does not support include:
- Tektronix 4014 emulation - Session logging - Pop-up menus. The only one of xterm's popup menu commands that is provided in xvt is displaying and hiding of the scrollbar and this is done simply by pressing any mouse key in the window with the CONTROL key held down. - Toolkit style configurability. In particular, xvt does not allow the user to remap the mouse or keyboard keys.
Features which are supported include:
- VT100 emulation.
