If WINDOWPATH is defined, just use enterTtyModeWithPath() (without
arguments).  This is the long-term way.

Else, if XFree86_VT is available (it is since Xorg 6.8 and XFree86
~4.4), use enterTtyMode(XFree86_VT).

Else, you may want to parse /var/log/{Xorg,XFree86}.0.log, but I don't
recommend that :)

Else, assuming 7 should be fine in most cases.
