	   Personally I'd like multiple text consoles on the vt320 on one
	   of my sparcs - it would be nice if the virtual terminals support
	   was architecture independant.

Great idea!  I suggest you write a user-level application to do it!

	   Getting the multiple X server support to be architecture independant
	   I would consider another (worthwhile) issue, but shouldn't basic pcvt
	   support be generalised first?

No offense intended to Hellmuth, but pcvt is *not* well enough
abstracted or written that I want to standardize on it.  It's also
pretty clear to me that it's not the right solution to the problem.
