Well, you won't get it from me! :-> (anyone else remember "The Prisoner"?)
I have no intention of re-engineering the complete wind.o.  All I'm
going to do is provide something that allows the console to 

	1) screen blank
	2) have a cursor (I like cursors)
	3) Be able to back-space properly (what's the deal, dudes?)
	4) handle ksh emacs-mode line editting (stop nuking the
	   end of my line!!)
	5) Do enough smart-terminal stuff to run less and 
	6) Anything else I get around to (or someone bribes me to

No windows, no icons, no menus, no pointers!  If I want a WIMP, I'll
go see my MGR (can I say that :-?).
