	That's a fair enough question, I guess.  The basic reason is that I
need to have an xterm available, and visible from the TV.  My convoluted TV-out
video setup *requires* a custom X modeline to output to the TV, so just 
switching to the console won't work.  If it weren't for that, I wouldn't really 
need one at all.

	It's one-man band, too... no network, no VGA monitor, etc.  I can't 
tweak with anything or copy off videos that I record without using the TV as 
the monitor.  With my video output setup, however, the quality is definately 
good enough to read standard 640x480 text screen.
