  Is there a nice way to run a program on a virtual console without ever
logging in?  I would want the program to start automatically when
netbsd starts up.  Creating a new gettytab entry and setting the lo
entry sort of works...  I would like to have the program telnet to a
machine on a certain port and execute a few commands.  At the moment I
have a setup working but it is quite messing using a hacked getty,
telnet, and several little support programs for each console.  Does
anyone know of a cleaner solution?
