Apparently it is not clear to everyone that the traditional behaviour
suddenly is wrong from a security POV (or noone uses telnetd any
more nor runs insecure ttys).

A PR is not the right place to discuss this - maybe bring this up on
tech-security and if consensus is reached, someone might apply the 
rumored patch (the PR has no patch, as of a few minutes ago).
