Hmmm... that makes me think of tests... I guess I won't really be able to supply a test for the feature, since that would just be testing whether the feature is available.
For interactive stuff like this, absence of unit tests is acceptable.
pexpect (or rebuilding some of its functionality on top of raw pty) should allow unit tests of textmode interactive stuff, though -- in theory, at least.
I suspect this approach would find more out about bugs in the pty implementations of old versions of Solaris than anything to do with Python.
