Btw, LAN == Serial2, because it is the same half of the SCC chip.
The sound chip has one bit that allows selecting which port will
be connected to the SCC; it is documented in HS-Modem.

After reading this thread, I think that Frank's idea could work,
if modified this way:

* Leave the old device names (modem1, serial1, modem2, serial2).

* Install new ttyS* terminals as RSVF devices, using XDD drivers.

* Have a function that makes usage of the "human" and "tty" names
  mutually exclusive:  if one uses Modem1 (with an old terminal 
  software), ttyS1 is locked and cannot be used; likewise, if
  someone uses ttyS1, Modem1 is locked and cannot be used.
