I've been working on fixing it. I have spent a huge amount of time
working on the tty stuff trying to gradually get it sane without breaking
anything and fixing security holes along the way as they came up. I spent
the past two evenings working on the tty regressions.

However I've had enough. If you think that problem is easy to fix you fix
it.

Have fun.

I've zapped the tty merge queue so anyone with patches for the tty layer
can send them to the new maintainer.
