Right. We do this sort of thing with our C++ based SIP services and it
works very well for ops staff.

What might be useful is a generic (a la inets) resource for setting up
a telnet-like server with configurable authorization levels (thinking
of IOS/Zebra "user" vs "enable" modes), command sets and callbacks,
readline-style command history.
