Change svgalib so that it can understand whatever you wanted for voice
recognition. But it will be much more difficult to support random
graphical clients than text ones, anyway.

You can have an X client which can send events to other X clients.
Not a problem, been a possibility under X for a long time.

However, you do _not_ want to put special knowledge of the interfaces
required for X, SVGAlib, text, and other random things in the kernel.
The kernel doesn't need to know about it.
