Personally, I think the user space program 'screen' does a
sufficient job of providing this type of service. The only time
I think this might be useful is if soemthing crashed, and you
needed scroll back to get some messages. And if that's the case,
who's the say that kernel backing store, and necessary code,
won't be any more corrupted then everything else?
Then again, all this was discussed on the list about... oh... 3-4
months ago? Heh.
