No that's not possible, the console does panning on the framebuffer, we do too for double buffering fullscreen modes. The right way would be be to write a terminal emulation that covers the whole DirectFB desktop area so it looks like the original linux terminal ;-) Then you could start applications (only threads yet) that are displayed half transparent on top of the terminal.
