.tmux.conf: Update comment about TERM variable

I switched from Solarized to Selenized colorscheme and noticed some
things have changed in tmux and terminals since I last looked. For
starters, it seems that, if your terminal emulator is configured to
use the sixteen color ANSI palette with Selenized values, then you
should configure vim and other apps to use sixteen colors instead
of approximating "more" with 256. I will update my vim config to use
sixteen colors also.

Eventually, once all the systems I use have newer terminfo, I will
be able to set the TERM variable inside tmux to be "tmux" instead
of pretending to be screen. For now, at least CentOS 7 doesn't like
the "tmux" TERM value so I will leave this
