I think i read somewhere, that the cua* devices for serial
were going to be made obselite..

I am asking this out of curiosity.. I have no problem with it being
removed, im just wondering if ttyS* will be taking over this role..

And just to ask why are they, if they are to be made redundant after
the kernel 2.0.xx series?

Im just wondering about this as far as compatability with other sources
built on FreeBSD or such that, by default may use cua*.

Regards, Jim.
