Just thinking… a suitable work-around for such OSes would be to set the
following in ~/.ssh/config:

Host my.old.host
     SetEnv TERM=vt220

Note I haven't tested this to see if it works, just read `man
ssh_config`.  Obviously this doesn't help with other use cases like
`telnet`.  For those, one could do `TERM=vt100 telnet foo.example.com 1234`.

If newer OSes already understand TERM=pccon, perhaps in the medium term
it might be worth reviewing this default setting.
