Ooops, the term server is in the way as well. I just think that it
would be nice to have a clean way to get from the tty to the raw
display, preferably without too much knowledge about the layout of the
directories provided by the console server.

That sounds a little too messy for my taste, but I don't see any
obvious cleaner way to it.

Having all these little servers stacked on each other makes me think
of STREAMS (with which I don't have much experience).

And the problem is, given a port to one end of such a stack, you want
to send an rpc to some server further down, and get the result back.
Performing a dir-lookup on the console, given only a term conencted to
the console, is one example.
