They're not broken - installing the STREAMS support doesn't magically
rewrite the Linux kernel pty code to use it.

You seem to be arguing that I should introduce potential bugs, with zero
benefit.

No - if this ever happens, it will not break pty-using code. Again, what
test are you thinking of to detect that the pty code is STREAMS based?
I'm not being obstructive here - I genuinely cannot conceive what such a
test would look like.
