I have no idea what you are trying to say here; OS X has functionally the
same pty support as Linux. And you are not bypassing X11 if you are seeing
graphics at all, you are *using* it; the X11 video driver needs to at least
be told what area of the screen to not update itself (for things like
OpenGL or v4l2 on Linux), or must be doing the update itself under control
of the X11 server.
