I also think that multiHEADing is okay. I think there is no use for
multiUSER (and multitasking). The only thing when you don't want terminals
to "share contents" is when one of them is used for logging. So I propose
that there can be any number of terminals, and widgets (like menus,...)
should be handled by them (so there can be parallel session 80x25, 190x64,
braille and speech...), but controlling grub will be UNIsession, i.e.
selecting menu entry, typing on command line, etc. will show on all heads.

More like 'VNC' but with support for different terminal devices...
