This won't work in general, because even if the developer happened to be
on a Linux console at the time of compilation, you couldn't tell whether
the program will be run on an xterm, console, rxvt or whatnot.

These sound like workable solutions, and I could add this if some user
really wants the Linux console UI. I'm not eager to do it "just in case
