I'm after a utility that 'wraps' up the tty (or is it the pty?), standard in 
and standard out of a process, so it can be controlled by standard in and 
standard out (of the utility).  This is mainly to enable the writing of a GUI 
frontend for a utility to talk to ssh.

The spawn function in the python pty module would do exactly what I want, but 
it is broken.  I've fixed it a little bit, but not quite enough.  To fix it 
more, I would actually have to understand what it is doing and how it works.  

I had a look at pty-redir, but it does not seem to do what I want.

Anyone know of a C utility that does what I'm after??  I've searched Google, 
but all I seem to get is pty-redir.  Perhaps I'm entering the wrong magic
