Puts logfile pagers on virtual consoles

console-log keeps logfile pagers open on virtual consoles. The default configuration puts exim's mainlog on tty8, and the syslog on tty9, in a less process. It can also make sure that this console is visible automatically after system boot so that a crashed system at least leaves the syslog readable on the console before reset. Using a pager makes searching, tagging and highlighting possible.
