Can't you just do something like:

    exec >& /dev/pts/XXX

in the parent shell?

that basically changes the _shell's_ stdout and stderr to go to

Warning: _all_ output will be redirected, including prompts and the
"output" from command-line editing when you enter commands.  However it
doesn't redirect the built-in echoing when you're not in bash's
command-line editing mode (you can turn off command-line editing by
doing "set +o emacs" in bash).

be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater, and even a newspaperman, but if a
man doesn't drive, there is something wrong with him.  -- Art Buchwald
