Is there a way to preserve the Berkeley pty naming standard but still
use a cloning device? I know, it's all opinion, but the /dev/pts/NNN or
/dev/pty/NNN notation just really makes me cringe. There must be a way
to hit a happy medium in there somewhere. Dynamic allocation of
/dev/tty[pqrstuvwxyzABDFGHIJKLMNO][0-9a-v] would seem to my (probably
short-sighted) mind to be sufficient.
[presuming that C and E are taken for virtual consoles, I didn't
see anything else that might suggest preclusion of the other letters
*BSD: exercised any daemons lately?
