The man page for clear_console(1) is a little unclear to me, and a little
bit disturbing.  I cannot figure out what "changes the foreground virtual
terminal to another terminal" is supposed to mean, but between that and
the reference to chvt(1) under SEE ALSO, it seems like someone might want
to investigate that more closely.
