Conserver from plan9?

Two related questions-
Has anyone tried to compile the console client on plan9 (from bell labs http://plan9.bell-labs.com/plan9/)?

How difficult is it to connect with a single console via netcat or equivalent and maybe some minor script magic?

I have an environment where I'd like to use conserver to manage and log the serial consoles, but the developers occasionally need to connect the remote debugger, which is part of a plan9 development system. Right now, everybody telnets to a cisco2511; not optimal for managing things or catching the occasional panic. I'd like to switch us over but still need that direct access. There are a limited number of actual consoles, so it'll all easily fit on one master server.
