Views by themselves wouldn't allow you to switch between lets say an Xserver
and a console, since besides *displaying* a console or an X-screen, you 
also want a tty-device associated with both, so you can actually enter 
something... so, views are a display-only thing, like different screen-modes
under ados, they don't provide multiplexing of the keyboard and/or mouse
devices at tty level.
