We used to use alternate consoles a lot on the old S/36 CNFIGSSP because it 
was like giving users an extra 1/2 session that did not count against the 
total number of devices, but of course you had to have a printer for it to be 
the alternate console to ... on the S/36 we had several phantom printers to 
organize our reports, because S/36 did not have OUTQs, then we spread the 
alternate consoles to those phantoms around so that power users could use 
that extra 1/2 session for all the HELP D stuff.
