Well, yes, that code from Aranym was only meant to be used with
real /dev/ttyS* devices, not with normal files or pipes. I only added
some hack so far that it is possible to open normal files for output,
so it is usable with the "make test" regression tester, too...
But I agree with you, this should eventually become similar
to --rs232-out/in and --midi-out/in, too. I'll see what I can do...

That should be easy to fix... I pushed a patch now.
