the Telentd has a keep_stdio configuration option:

    * @brief Keep standard IO of the caller.
    * Telnet takes over the standard input, output and error associated with
    * task, if this parameter is set to @c true.  In this case, it will 
@b not
    * listen on any sockets.  When this parameter is @c false, Telnet will
    * create other tasks for the shell which listen on sockets.
   bool keep_stdio;

What is the use case of this feature? Can I remove it?
