    Yep, and I think it won't take too much work in the keyboard driver to
    extend the tty <-> framebuffer binding to the keyboards. I'd try to do
    it via fg_console[fbidx] and binding a keyboard to a specific framebuffer.
    Does that sound simple and minimal intrusive enough?

    Mac68k and PPC are the ideal machines to play these games (though 7 keyboards
    would probably leave you without mice there). Time for ADB device address
    resolution ...
