Can you post these other places? I would like read these threads
and know what another persons think about it. And don't worry
about your english, mine is worse ;).

I don't know if there are some another sequences to CSI 38 and CSI 48,
but if they were not then these new sequences don't break any
compability. Can you give a bit more information?

They can conflict with private extensions. I don't like the idea of
using the private space for a extension that surely will be part
of all the terminals.

I don't understand why you can not ignore CSI 38 ; 2 ; Pr ; Pg ; Pb m,
because any sequence that it is not understood must be ignored.
Am I missing something?
