As an after-thought, it occurred to me that I may have not been obvious
enough in my original reply. Having been working on *IX variants since
PWB V6/7, circa 1978, I've some understanding of *IX general
capabilities, and some understanding of the basic capabilities of
various utilities that run on *IX systems. I'm not expert at anything,
but don't claim such expertise either.

As to my soapbox paragraph, it seems to fit with generally accepted
concerns about security issues, at which I'm also no expert. If the
requested <CTL>-<ALT>... does not imply a local console, I'm glad to
learn new stuff.
