Since the machine I'm complaining about has 1.25GB of memory, I'm not
worried about a few lines of text taking up kernel memory for a screen
buffer, nor would I be worried about a few kb taking up some kernel
memory on my 486. Being able to do a `ls` for a large directory and
switch between consoles without loosing the `ls` contents is worth it.
I guess I'm a minority with that opinion or I wouldn't even be writing
