I just signed up for this list. As far as I could tell there is no stty
available for linux yet so I went ahead and wrote one, I'm also adding
features it needs to perform the same function as getty. 
The todo file says the init program is needed, if no one has done this yet
I would be interested. 
Is ps available yet? 
Assuming there isn't an stty program available that I missed, I can send the
stty code to any one who is interested.

I'm really impressed with what I have seen so far, I've been hoping something
like this would come along for years :)

My init is almost done, should have been done a while ago but I was
busy with "real work" (things all crashing for various strange

I still need to write the stuff that lets it chnge run-levels though
(I think I will limit it to only 2 levels, so I can use signals
SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2, does anyone see any problems with this?)
