Should we throw an X server in the kernel just because that makes
graphical systems usable? :-]

Sure, especially since I could then resize xconsole when my machine
dies and the panic message doesn't reach the log files... This is one
of the main reasons why VC should remain in the kernel. Besides, a
userlevel implemention of VC would probably end up being as bloated as
the X-server is ;-)
