Well, mgetty (and vgetty for voice) does also in addition to normal login
- receive faxes (and can start a whole bunch of things with receiving
  faxes, like printing, forwarding per mail, ...)
- receive voice messages (to these apply the same option as to faxes)
- fire up pppd
- fire up uucico
- fire up [any custom programm, if configured by the system

Does the same apply to mgetty as to any other getty? (If yes, does
this mean that I don't have to do anything now?)
