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?
