On the other hand, faxgetty simply invokes a user-defined getty program
after the modem reports a DATA connection.  Thus it should be possible
to run a getty version with ringback capablility at that point as long
as the other program doesn't insist on re-initializing the modem or
dropping the existing connection.  I don't know if mgetty can be used
this way or not.
