Not to argue with this, just a general note: most of whatever is
portable from the terminal IO interfaces belongs into <termios.h> indeed.


Traditionally nonportable stuff related to pty allocation and
master-slave pairing has been "recently" standardized as well (as in,

(+grantpt, ptsname, unlockpt; they seem to date back to SUSv1 / UNIX 95)

CC'ing Eric for the obligatory POSIX sanity check... :)
