This is not a problem (with ordinary user-level privileges),
every serial terminal program needs to use the handshake

API's for serial port access.
I'd guess that Graeme is quite familiar with them, since argyll
supports serial port devices. :-)

Yes, modem lines can be sampled, although I don't think the software
interface in Argyll is setup this way. It sounds easy enough
to create an interface of some sort, although using software sampling
is always a dodgy proposition on a multi-tasking operating system.

Another option for instance would be to buy something like
this <http://www.ftdichip.com/Products/EvaluationKits/DIPModules.htm>,
and put it in "bit banger" mode to plug it into USB.
