That came down to developer time and it appeared that I was the only
person interested in it.

See kern/158086 (which updates digi(4)) and kern/152254 (which re-
implements TTY functionality that was lost with TTYng).  Both include
patches that should work on either 8.x or -current.  Of the two, the
latter is more urgent because it impacts the KBI.

I've only got access to PCI Xem cards that are used for serial console
concentration so it would be useful for you to test both the Xr cards
and dial-in support.
