The problem is that some `true' ttys are not really ttys, i.e., they're
ptys (or e.g., linux console ttys).  In this case the baud-rate is
totally bogus, but it's set by the system.  For instance on my system,
the console reports a baud-rate of 38400.

The original message was a request for a something which is basically
speed-dependent to be set based on whether emacs is running on a tty or
not; this is not reasonable because of the existance of ptys, which are
generally interfaces to much faster communication channels than is
apparent from their baud-rate.
