    NO! I mean, I'm not even sure it can be done, but if it could, wouldnt
    it be HORRIBLY slow?!? Imagine the kernel doing a read/write EVERY time
    you change your VC. This would certainly be a pain in the ass,
    especially when you do it a lot (like I do). And even worse with slow
    disks/controllers.
