Especially since the documentation for stty suggests that it can change
the line discipline, but apparently doesn't. Looking at ttyflags(8), I
can't even find any suggestion of that.

That might be a bit overkill, at least if I could get the same effect
with stty.

Which makes me thing that at least for symmetry, one should be able to
use stty to set the line discipline to slip, ppp, and whatever else
there is, as well.
