I think someone already replied with ttysnoop - judging by its description
it'd be just the thing. (I've no use for it now, as I'm not enamoured of WIMP
interfaces.) You could probably even make a script that'd run up a ttysnoop in
xterm for every VT that isn't running getty...

Then when you type `startx' you'd immediately have all your VTs in front of
you. Hmm, maybe that should be standard?
