Alexandre, you mean to eliminate tty driver from the tree at all?

Hmmm, I am the one with a non-right mind, who wants to run Microsoft Word 
with a look'n'feel of TurboVision (well, NCURSES would suffice too) and to 
play Diablo1 using AA-lib.  I am serious, really. :-)

So I think we just should switch defaults to a nulldrv, but let the ttydrv 
lives here and waits for a better times.  Please.  

Thanks. :-)
