X will be difficult, since you need a non framebuffer X server and
that needs configuration.

People not able to use vesa2 and not comfortable with vga16 must
configure their X and save that configuration somewhere, so you need
to have to create/copy a small loopback file to a filesystem or mount
a filesystem natively.

I don't know how good I get that to work and I don't realy like to
mess with peoples data on a Demo-FS.

Far better than without. Its great to have only devices that actually
work in dev.
