Right.  -nographic's effects can be described in terms of other
command-line options, but it is pretty hairy.  The effects fall in two

1) -nographic is a shortcut for "-display none -machine graphics=off"

2) it changes the default character device backend from "vc:80Cx24C"
(80x24 graphical console) to either "mon:stdio" or "stdio", except for
the parallel port whose default becomes simply "null".
