Just a wild stab in the dark here.

Is is possible to move a process from one tty to another?  In
particular, is it possible to move a process started on an xterm (with
TTY pts/2 say) to a console (tty1 say)?

This would be really useful, as sometimes I start ncftp or the like in
an xterm, and then decide I want to restart X.
