Actually, its a good question - the terminal emulation on
NetBSD-i386 is greatly superior to the Amiga version (including
virtual terminals).

Would it be too hard to configure multiple ttye's on multiple
_views_, and include some system-wide (ie. before tty gets the
input) hotkey for changing views?
