not really.  There was some discussion a while back (5 years ago) about
splitting off the device-driver code (would be a nice idea, but I've not
found time to work on it - perhaps after 5.4 if the wide-character code is
stable enough that it doesn't eat my time up).

yes - essentially replace ncurses/tty with some different code.  That,
and ncurses/tinfo are the parts that know about serial terminals.

yes - wgetch() also would be replaced.
