I have nothing against SSH using to access remote host with
real character device but I want to have the character device
on that side, that looks like real.

In ideal, I'd like to have /dev/ttyXXX character device file, 
which maps to character device of another host, accessible via
network.  Like GNBD for character, not for block devices.

May be I could map pseudoterminal device like /dev/pts/* to external
character device?
