Yeah, the original idea behind ocaml-vnc was to use it as a PV framebuffer
for Xen, so that we could provide interactivity for Mirage.

However, it may be easier to provide a clean-slate ANSI terminal emulator
on top of the console API before jumping to a full graphical environment.
In addition to the ANSI terminal, that would need extending the CONSOLE
with a CONSOLE_RW to provide a callback for interactive input.
