pty.h rotten?

we have just tried to use the pseudo-ttys in the same way we did years
ago, by adding a device driver entry to the device table.

The file "pty.h" still defines the corresponding entry, but the
functions listed there (pty_open, pty_close...) have been renamed into

I am rather sure that pty.h should be eliminated and the only method to
initialize the ptys would be to call "telnetd_pty_initialize()". Any
