	Of course. But I'm thinking of times like the many recently, when 
one or another of my none too new machines couldn't cope at all, at all, 
with my new wide monitor. Getting to init3 requires a reboot, afaik -- 
especially in a case such as this, when the machine seems blind and deaf 
to both the keyboard and the mouse; getting into system-config-display a/
o xorg.conf with ssh or telnet (IF the latter could) would be quicker.

	I didn't mean to imply that I was going to install telnet-server.
