Well, I could at least also test on Hyperion, if I find my special

Really, having wscons and then a modern X11R6 Xserver (even if
unaccelerated) would make the machines so much more usable again.

Well, send the changes to me before committing. And also, breaking
things temporarily in -current might be acceptable. I remember SMP
on sparc being broken for months ...
