This is a long overdue feature, so well done!

However there's something that looks a bit odd to me, and since I don't have
-current set up at the moment, I can't check directly, so I'll ask here:
Is it true that the naming scheme uses /dev/pts/999 and /dev/pty999, not
/dev/pty/999?  If so, that looks like a mistake.  Is there something
stopping the cleaner naming being used?

If I've just read the code wrong, then I apologise and will immediately
clear bench space for a -current test box!
