    No, I'm not going to make a GGI keyboard hack, Alan. I'm rather addicted to
    the fbdev solution (no flame, that's just what I happen to work on most of
    the time.

    Geert's multihead support for fbcon lacks multiple keyboard (and mouse)
    And I feel there should be a way to solve this problem independent of GGI
    (not because I think it's a Bad Thing, just so that people have some
    choice). I think a new line discipline would be the cleanest, let's call it
    kbd and the only differences to tty are 1) there's a translation map and b)
    it's going to the fg tty of the attached set of consoles. Did I forget
    something important??
