Using conserver for container TTYs

Thanks for conserver!  I have long been looking for a program of this
kind, having seen it long ago, but somehow never found it.

I am considering it as a possible pool and collector for the many
virtual TTYs that come up in a container environment.  Have you
considered that possibility?

This is moving away from Docker to the Open Containers Initiative, for
which RunC is the most developed driver program.  It directs TTYs to a
(rather clumsy, demo-style) program RecvTTY.  The TTY is passed as a
file descriptor over a UNIX Domain socket as ancillary data.

Would it be a proper use case for conserver to pickup such incoming file
descriptors and setup a terminal session for it?
