I suppose it has a telnet client; I've not used it in this mode,
only as a basic serial driver.

I believe what I mean is that keyboard + display + serial
communications software = (IMO) terminal emulator.  I plug it
into the RS-232 DTE port just like a VT100; I type commands
and receive output from the host just like a VT100.
(Well, close to VT100 -- actually I set TERM=linux.)  I agree
that it's Linux and not Kermit that's implementing the escape
sequences etc.
