thinking about backwards compatibility (important)

i noted in some bug that i can't find now that "profterm" should accept
the old gnome-terminal's -x argument.  i wasn't sure whether it should
treat -e and -x identically to how the old gnome-terminal did.

i just realized that libgnome (and eel) have references to running
gnome-terminal in gnome 1, so gnome-terminal really does need to act
backwards compatible.

binary renaming (gedit to gedit2) also breaks things like the mime

i'll start opening bugs for these and any others i can think of, but
please keep this kind of thing in mind when doing changes.
