yes/no: some terminals draw the lines directly:
modern xterm does (draws lines using X calls)
kterm draws into bitmaps which are then BLT'd to the display
(appears it did this before xterm, though I didn't notice)
MGT copied code from xterm to do this
gnome-terminal paraphrased the xterm code (no comment ;-)
The last I checked, konsole doesn't. I seem to recall noticing one of the
rxvt family doing this, though I agree it probably wasn't Eterm.
