I agree. You also find some source code in this direction in glibc,
in xterm (horrible mess of #ifdefs), in kdebase/konsole, in rxvt,
in gnome-terminal, ...

Is this API sufficient? The example in the glibc manual indicates that
some STREAMS operations are necessary as well, no?
The usual way for some code to come into gnulib is that someone who needs
it writes it, and then submits it into gnulib.
