	And a button to change to virtual consoles (i.e. same as
Alt+Ctrl+F1, ...)? I think this is a ask of the X server so I'm not sure
WM or GNOME could do it ... There is also the portability issues, this
could be done in Linux, but in other Unixes?
[Maybe hook that if it recognizes a X session opened from a text terminal
them this would be posible, instead no].
