sure, that would be better.

i was under the impression that you might want to use wscons.conf
to update the default automagically configured settings for screen 0
(e.g. change the emulation from "vt100" to "sun" or "adm3a" or 
something like that).

i was thinking of it in the same terms as i think of the "/" entry
in /etc/fstab (e.g. to update root mount from read-only "/" to 
read-write "/").
