console switching and DMs
Something like VT_ACTIVATE would need to be implemented to allow console switching. In the meanwhile xorg refuses the vtx option, thus making lightdm & such fail with an Xserver error:
(EE) Fatal server error: (EE) Unrecognized option: vt7
In the meanwhile DMs could be taught not to use the vtx option.
