I think multipath would be nice feature. Eg. you can have serial/other
remote connected and then have local terminal at same time.

This would allow remote maintenance for server and then if user is
locally there he can operate machine too.

For this there would need to be a way to say send output to these
terminals and gather input from these terminals.
