    Sounds good - Vi is a text editor, so no more binary logfiles from systemd!

    If you are on SSH you can just open all other sessions you feel like opening to have more than one terminal window.

    If you are connected on serial... afaik you can't multiplex like that, but again serial isn't that common anymore.
    If I am in X (your CTRL+ALT+Fn case) then I am not working in a text interface, now am I?

    And, there are other operating systems than Linux (your ALT-F1, ... case)

    OTOH if I am in a single user session on a broken Linux box then none of those are available.

    Straight forward as a pen and a piece of paper.

    I'm not sure about this one. There's tmux for that kind of thing.

    I've used this feature a lot in the text editor I've used since about 1985 (JOVE). I find it amazing what vi users have lived without in those years.

    Depending on many factors, opening new ssh sessions might not be that handy: I usually jump between a few hops before reaching the ssh server I need to connect to.

    Code:
    # virsh console guest1
    is quite common and it uses a emulated serial.

    However I solve both problems with GNU screen.

    I heard someone joking that now they can finally close vim by calling kill within vim terminal.

    Serious comment though: if I am working in a text mode interfface with no GUI, thus no xterms or cmd shells, then this could be very useful.

    If only I can remember the command mode key sequences to operate it!
