Is linux ever in a state where the good old standby console can be reached by a user space alternative could not?

It's all in the execution. If he succeeds in trashing the old console and the new one is poo, then it's a bad idea. If it's an actual improvement, and is reliable, and has documentation so users don't have to telepath how to use it, then it's a good idea.

My initial reaction is that it's a very bad idea, especially for servers. But we'll just have to wait and see.

I'm with jdixon on this one. OTOH, if it ends up working really well then I'll be glad to be proven wrong.
