[20050709] Changing wscons virtual consoles from a script (Update)
In Linux there's chvt(1) to change to a specific virtual terminal from a script, but there's no such command in NetBSD (yet?). Those in need of it, e.g. to switch from X to console before putting a laptop to sleep, should check out this mail that was bounced around on #NetBSD @ IRCnet. Would be nice to have that moved into NetBSD...

Update: Christos Zoulas has added a -s switch to wsconscfg that does exactly that. Yumm!
