The serial port install has almost gone by the wayside, yet I still
find a number of cases where it would be great if there were such a

Headless servers come to mind specifically.

Grub legacy has a way to setup the serial port and broadcast output to
both the console and the serial port to check to see where the real
person is.

I'd like to know if syslinux can do this as well.

Id also like to be able to detect WHICH console was selected and if
the real person is at a serial console then be sure to offer
customized images to install oses from the serial port.
