Warren's 'VTserver'

Thanks Dennis.  Did you, perchance, modify it to speak to the old 11/34
console emulator (unlikely since you mention an 11/93 (Lucky!)) ?  I think
maybe that device doesn't speak proper "ODT," or perhaps a dialect of it
that VTserver may not have been expecting as mine won't auto-feed the
initial stuff to the '11 and I have to key it all in manually (ugh).  I
might write code to mitigate this if I get really motivated.

Then again, I tried to use vtserver on a modern macintosh, which may have
been my folly.  Trying again with a nice old OpenSolaris SPARC next before
diving into hard debugging...

tips / suggestions (other than "run Linux") welcome.
