Additional thought:

With vt, default text modes are typically much bigger than
the traditional 80x25 of sc. With the "block graphics" and
maybe ASCII art + foreground / background color attributes,
maybe there is a viewer that converts the image into "text
with control characters" that can be displayed directy in
the vt text mode, without using any graphics?

Just a stupid thought... ;-)
