    What if someone made a modem that accepts ATSLINE_RAW_OUTPUT=AC380V50HZ
    and does just that? Serial drivers should be immediatelly changed to hunt
    for that line (and all variations of it) to protect modem-owning
    population from frying their phone lines and killing themselves? Or modem
    manufacturer should be umm... educated about what is reasonable to put in
    a hardware and what isn't?
