OK, so be it.
I've just imported the sys/dev/wscons directory, and will
add some device driver stuff later.
It's still a "work in progress", I'd expect some changes in:
-system interface (IOCTLs)
-keyboard mapping (device independant code by J. Hannken-Illjes)
-font handling
-X support
I've added a "screen" instance, representing a virtual tty on a
display, to cgd's code, but didn't add the "raster" operations for it.
So this must be made consistent again before eg TGA can be

I'll be absent for most of next week (SysComms at Geneve,
anybody there?).

best regards
