>From seyon README:
   Seyon is a complete full-featured modem communications package for the
   X Window System. Some of its features are: - dialing directory - terminal
   emulation (DEC VT02, Tektronix 4014 and ANSI) - script language - Zmodem 

I use it for test work on the 2 Solaris boxes (and formerly an UPS) under
my desk. I basically choose seyon because it allowed logging and because
it shows most of the modem-control lines (very handy when testing UPS
software ;-)

I am not interested in multiple sessions per console and such... This is
a non issue in my case.
