Let me know what you think. If it's stable and wont create problems, that's
a definite plus. ;)

Dunno, but it would be nice to have a Unicode console in BSD and have
it take full advantage of video hardware on most PCs (always found
syscons annoying to get into a better text-resolution with vidcontrol,
so I usually don't bother.)
I think it would round-out the offering, Debian has this setup on
the Linux side. Gentoo install is a good example of a "pretty"
console too. Not sure if I'd ever bother configuring like that,
though it'd be nice if (optionally) it could work in this manner
w/o much messing around.
NetBSD wscons is a good example of a very straight forward console
-- scrollback isn't supported by default. :)
