Bug#312740: Request regarding ROTE library

a patch to add that funcionality would be most welcome. As for the
reading of the pty descriptor, I guess there should be an interface
function for returning it, rather than moving the field to rote.h.
That way binary compatibility won't be broken.

I'm a little short on time so I'll do those modifications after july
4. But if any of you want to send me a patch for that I'll apply it
right away!

Thanks for the continued interest in my software,
