No, it's not "all that trouble."  It'll be much easier this way, and it
seems really unlikely that the performance difference will ever be
noticed.

Plus, we won't be able to do "write fd" with gtk5250terminal  (since it
doesnt appear to call select() at all) but doing the way that I outlined
above, it should work out of the box...

As for Linux-SNA & friends, we can burn that bridge when we come to it :)
