Why does it have to be an xterm? There are much better terminal
applications for the Mac. With the new automatic X start, you can use
any of them, ssh -X somewhere, and still have the ability to fire up
remote X apps.
Heck, instead of using the Applications menu, you could have them
double-click an icon that is a shell script that just does "ssh -Y
hostname". Mac OS will fire up Terminal and execute the ssh command,
and whatever it is they've been doing in xterm will continue to work.
