	I do not mean one framebuffer displayed on both screens
simultaneously.  That would be goofy given the anemic resolution of
the built-in display.  I just think it would be great to have, say,
one xterm on the back of the box, and the rest of the environment on
the big screen.  Or maybe use the built-in screen for status messages
or syslog.
