Someone is. The 'full' release of the GGI, which is being worked
on right now, has lots of multiheading support. The current 'preview'
edition doesn not do this, though. Man, multiheading on PCs is a real
can of worms... we'll do it as well as it can be done, though, and GGI
for other platforms that have less braindead hardware than PCs will be
able to be less constricted than the GGI for Linux/Intel.
