That's it exactly. The reason why I want a Term32.
It would be great to be able to have 80col w1-7 as well under the same
boot but it appears not to be.
What I'm doing is setting up HDB-DOS partitions with different NOS9Boots
in order to do say a Multivue boot, a normal boot (Term80/w1-7) and a
game boot (Term32). I haven't even messed around with v1-7 (no idea how
to use these) since I'm just getting my feet wet with NOS9 after over 12
years away from my (now fairly mordernized) rig.

All the old vdg programs write directly to /term. Yeah, sure they could
be patched to /v1 or /w5 or whatever, but they'd still be hard-coded to
a specific window. So why not leave them on /term?
That way you don't have to remember which window they were patched to
