    Well, on blanking, we do actually already pass in a parameter that says
    "this is not a full blank, it's just a move to graphics mode". It would
    make 100% sense to add the _same_ parameter to the unblank code.

    That would just make the code more logical, and it should fix your
    concerns, no?
