Without any user intervention other that having plugged his braille
device? (or put some parameters on the kernel command line, for serial
devices). _That's_ the point.

And remember that the blind person is not alone in front of the machine,
so that you need to have some synchronization between what is displayed
on the screen and on the braille device. Is it possible to run several
synchronized front-ends? Having brltty just read what bterm displays is
really a fine solution for this.

(Yes, I considered writing a brltty-oriented front-end for d-i, but the
above point takes precedence)
