Well, they're supported, but that doesn't mean they work
exceptionally well. You can see what it'll look like by
running LCDd with the curses driver:

LCDd -t 40x4 -d curses

Here are some sample screens:

+----------------------------------------+
|## CPU 0.0%: SerDevian ###############*|
|Usr 0.0% Nice 0.0% |
|Sys 0.0% Idle 100% |
|0% 100% |
+----------------------------------------+

+----------------------------------------+
|## Linux 2.2.13: SerDevian ############*|

So, some screens use only the left 20x4 half, some use the
whole display, and others are mixed.. The server supports any
display from 16x2 to 80x25, but the clients don't yet. We need
to make the screen layout language more advanced, so it can
automatically resize screens...
