Well, chaining is such a strong word. How about "connecting the serial
ports in a ring"? The thing is that he only jumps from one box to the
other, not through more/all of them. 

I actually prefer this solution over a portmaster, unless it supports
SSH. I would hate to telnet with a clear-text password across the
Internet. SSH'ing into a live system, and them calling upon the other
system via serial port seems like a good solution to me.
