I tested this out, and it appears to be specific to xterm. I was not
able to get any
terminal except xterm to set the resource using that environment variable. Since
this doesn't seem to be supported for other terminals, I don't see it
being much use
either in Debian or upstream over just using the -name flag. I will
add clarification to
the manpage to use the -name option if supported to set the resource
to FvwmConsole.
