It's vague - saying that the entry has to be a derivative of "screen",
without saying in what way. A quick check on my Fedora18beta shows
that someone's setting it to screen-256color.
"screen" on the other hand provides for the ability to map TERM
into screen.$TERM if that happens to be available. I added several
entries to the terminal database to use this feature simply because
screen never matches any of the terminals exactly (line-drawing,
color, function keys all have issues).
tmux does not appear to implement this mapping (If tmux adopted
that feature, it would be an improvement).
