I don't think there's any easy way to do that. What would you want to
happen if you have two connections to host:4711 at the same time?

So you'd have to hack the telnet daemon so that it (i) only allows a
single connection at any time, (ii) allocates a specific pty-pair at
startup (so that no other random process will get the pty you want).

Further more, I'm not sure if the modern UNIX98 way to handle pty:s
let's you allocate a specific pty pair at all.

And finally, what has all this got to do with the Debian Hurd project?
