Whimterm features an xterm widget for Tk.  It allows using xterm's 
-into feature to embed a regular xterm into a Tk widget.

It supports resizing of the parent, and you can change the font size of 
the xterm with ctrl-rightclick and the size will adjust via 
Tk_GeometryRequest (if possible).

Here's a screenshot of the xterm widget with some ttk widgets running 
with Tk 8.5.2:

It uses Tcl and Tk stubs.

You can download the 3rd revision here (with a BSD license):

To build it you will need to modify the Makefile for your system.  No 
autoconf goo yet, if ever.

The sources are in megapkg here:

svn checkout

This was inspired by a recent post requesting an xterm widget.  I hope 
this helps.

Example usage:
pack [xterm .xterm] -fill both -expand 1
