It is a little more complex than that; hrancid uses hpuifilter to filter
the screen handling control characters/esc seqs.  It needs additional
code to handle ptys and /dev/tty for ssh.  Alternatively, I finally
figured out how to make expect (tcl) match escapes - reliably...just
havent had time to work on it.
