that is indeed correct, but when something like this one was out
there for such a long time, many people became accustomed to it.
i certainly do not want to press ctrl-alt-fx just to switch to a
new console. it isn't very comfortable. so will there be a compile
option for that, or will the people who want the old behavior
(or behavior like linux or freebsd of alt-fx instead of ctrl-alt-fx,
unless in X) have to patch the kernel themselves (which admittedly
is trivial, but that's not the issue)?
