I thought it was (at the time I looked at it about two years ago) a step
in the right direction, but I still didn't find any compelling reason to
use it over and above screen....
What I really would like to see is a complete terminal server
implementation for Unix, which could of course include logging of tty
sessions, terminal emulation ala screen, whatever. I would imagine that
it wouldn't take too much to glue together existing software such as
screen and/or kermit, pppd, etc. to do all the fancy stuff my little
DECserver machines do. After all Xylogics did essentially the same
thing with a ROM-able Unix kernel.....
