"    Why, oh why, did Sun flush the serial ports on their newer
" kit?  Having a ttyb was so nice for applications like dial-out.

similarly i used to wonder why, since the kbd/mouse are driven off
what are functionally serial ports, they didn't add a little hardware
so that if a kbd was not detected you could have ttyc and ttyd...
