I will second this.  I use ratpoison and have it configured so it
actually looks like a console (no borders, no labels, ...).  Maximises
the screen real estate and yet provides a full Emacs experience
including full colours (not just 16 or whatever you get with the
console) and all the various keystrokes (M-<right> etc.).

I used to use console+screen but found the limitations of the console
frustrating.  I still do use this combination when connecting via ssh from
my phone but that's for quick 'n dirty access only and I put up with the
reduced interface capabilities.
