I hardly think this is Joe Random User's setup..:-)

Not considering the technical backgorund (which is of course an easy
stance), it could be really interesting to have *by default* the
default X session on tty1, when a display manager is used, and
something like 2 other console sessions on tty2 and tty3.

Of course, if no *dm is used, then the system should logically default
to N consoles with the first one on tty1. I'd say that N should, in
such case, be greater than 2.
