wonder if we can put up an entry for how to change xterm colors on the
xfce homepage.
(maybe a news entry would suffice at first)

It seems to be asked pretty often, plus the default xterm colors/size
are really weird usually :)

feel free to use attached file.

! this are Xresources to make xterm look good
! put into ~/.Xresources
! after changing contents, run xrdb -merge .Xresources
! gentoo has a bug so that it doesnt read it when X starts, so add above
! command to /etc/xfce4/xinitrc (top) and be happy.
