Indeed -- three major subsystems are of specific concern right now:
Poul-Henning has expressed some interest in the tty code, and hopefully
will do something about it sometime soon. I'm happy to deal with if_slip
and likely if_ppp once the tty code is done. The various Cronys drivers
are all waiting on the tty code, but otherwise appear ready.
