[Python-Dev] using openssh's pty code

Since openssh must handle pty allocation, its support for pty operations 
across various platforms is more robust than python's.  I'd like to use 
openssh's code to improve on python's pty handling.

I know the licenses for openssh and python are different.  Can anyone 
tell me if it's legal to mix openssh code into python?  Assuming it is, 
are the python maintainers willing to accept a python patch that 
contains some openssh code?
