Probably not. Changing the tty interface ought to have a human in the loop
and an alternative way in to the machine if something should go wrong.
mgetty has a very nice debugging capability. It's influenced my style of

raises your awareness of how it works - if you like that sort of thing -
which I suppose you do since you are using Debian.
