In the world of today's ├╝ber computers using the text console may not
be necessary, but I've had some pretty old computers, that took
forever to start up X.  Then running a terminal, even say urxvt with
font-smoothing was slow.  Sometimes we just want something simple, and
to have a way of supporting it.

Actually, i think doing the virtual consoles through X is a cool idea,
because you can do alot of very interesting things that way, but it's
always something to take into consideration, what use cases us edge
people have had.
