How about moving the lcd-drivers into the kernel?

there we have a direct link to the serial drivers, to i2c-calls and the
hardware drivers go where they should be - in the kernel!
The graphics display could be interfaced through a kernel video
framebuffer like the drivers for ati, permedia,....
the text displays are standard pty-devices.

the server application could then be optimized for servicing the clients
and the drivers could be used from whatever application you want - even from
X (for graphics).

the interface has to be done right. all other things are no real problem.

what do you think about it?
