When we went through a major console server upgrade a few months ago I
was interested in doing this as well.  However the work involved exceeded
my time, so I came up with an alternative that uses normal ssh to access
our server.

I threatened to write this all up several months ago :-), but your
letter prompted me to actually do it.  See:


Note: I am by no stretch of the imagination a security person.  If anyone
sees anything wrong with what I've done, please sing out.

Also, I've haven't done a lot of review of the README, and haven't even
looked at the code in a while.  Comments are welcome, but please be
kind :-).
