The problem I see with SVGATextMode is, that it is considered obsolete.
It does not work with framebuffer devices, which is what 2.4 uses.
Or am I mistaken here?

If not, I do not think that it is a good idea to base someone's magnification
needs upon a piece of software that is going to be unusable really soon.

But for completeness, maybe it would be good to mention it in
the Debian Accessibility HOWTO after all.

I will mention it, as soon as it exists :-).
