This will greatly enhance the usefulness of QEMU virtual serial ports, because the Linux kernel interprets a break on the serial console as a SysRq, but there is currently no way to pass this signal over a pseudo-terminal.

Looking for hackers with the skills:

      While being there, it might also make sense to transport things like baud rate settings and control/status lines across pseudo-terminals, because that would e.g. allow to transparently extend serial lines across the internet.
