console mode xwpe

I agree with Kenn, please keep console mode xwpe alive. 90% of my xwpe use
is in console mode. Although xwpe has its shortcomings, it's still the best
editor I've come across for the kind of work I like to do.

While I'm here, I'm interested to know if other people have had trouble
using gpm to copy from one Linux VT onto another VT running xwpe. The same
problem exists when I try to copy from xwpe into a different application on
its own VT.
