This is completely unnecessary.  Sup runs without modification over
term if you set it up correctly.  You have to be root when you do the
tredir, and you have to have the root shell pointing to the same
TERMDIR as the shell that started term.  Nothing else is necessary
(besides changing the sup host to localhost).
