Their software and menu interface is far inferior to the VT4xx

Right now I'm trying to find out what the difference is between the IBM
3151 and 3161 terminals. I also would probably want to know the
difference between the 3151 and 3153. I know the 3153 is a lot newer.
Plus I'm seeing if I can find a 3164 or two for cheap, and I'm seeing if
NetBSD can address these terminals in block mode.
