Possibly.  I've had remarkably bad luck using TIOCCONS.  I'd also
rather not wrap the serial data in IP packets.  The speeds are as high
as the machines involved support, which doesn't say all that much.

Given the difficulty I've had trying to figure out how to implement
this, I think I may be better off coming at it from another angle in
any case.
