It works fine on my computer so I created a package on AUR, for sharing this little thing with the community.
 
It doesn't depend on a deprecated file from initscript, (/etc/rc.local), it's full systemd :D

Extending getty@.service

For many months I used this method, and it caused huge instability problems that I couldn't track down... Putting that service in exactly as described causes VTs to flicker and go black and unresponsive about half of the time.

Maybe we should put a warning at least?
