I am currently working on project, which refactors a lot of FreeBSDs
console code.

While reading a lot of source code and add some code here and there I
came to the idea how useful it whould be to have these changes for other
BSDs and architectures != i386 on FreeBSD.

I saw that OpenBSD and NetBSD use wscons. This whould make things for my
project easier, if we whould have wscons in FreeBSD.

What whould the FreeBSD project think about a ported wscons for FreeBSD?

I know that wscons lags a few things, what we allready have at syscons,
but people arn't forced to use it if they don't want to.

best regards,
