This way nobody needs to worry about /etc/inittab changes anymore.
This seems like it could be very useful, but it doesn't seem at all Xen
specific. I think it would be worth trying to get this into an upstream
-- e.g. agetty (since that is what you appear to shell out to).

I've been using an inittab entry like this:

T0:23:respawn:bash -c "/sbin/getty --noclear -L $(/etc/find-remote-tty.sh) 115200 vt102"

But having agetty able to search the Linux command-line for the argument is much better.
