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 
application development. Read up on it and turn it on.  Watching the outputs 
raises your awareness of how it works - if you like that sort of thing - 
which I suppose you do since you are using Debian.
