It doesn't seem that these ioctl() functions are POSIX or ANSI C.  So it is a 
safe bet, I suppose, that if it is not POSIX or ANSI C, it will not be 
supported yet (?).

And there is apparently the difficulty of the Windows OS allowing drivers to 
set latches or flip-flops in the UART of the serial port anyway, is that true??
