	Nope, we don't seem to have support for doing that. It's
actually telnetd and getty that would need to be tweaked to do
this... it shouldn't be hard, and there are plenty of capabilites free
in gettytab that could be used. I'd use "if", for "initial file", to
go along with "im" for "initial message".
