Indeed, and the comments to that blog are much more informative than the
blog itself.

As the last comment points out, if you are on a Red-Hat-flavoured system
then simply "export TERM=xterm1" will work.  Otherwise, the "right" way
to go about this is to decompile the terminal description, edit it, and
recompile, as noted in the penultimate comment.

Another way of disabling the alternate screen is to run "screen" inside
every terminal.

Incidentally, I don't find the alternate screen annoying at all - in
fact I miss it when it's not there.
