Circling back on this feature which I still think is needed for ESP8266.

This feature end up being a lot more than I had expected, the original patch provided earlier I had added and tried to work into the code base was reject because it was a bit of a one off and the group wants to keep things clean which makes perfect sense to me. Here is the original pull request https://github.com/micropython/micropython/pull/2814.

After working with the team they suggested having the ability to apply dupterm to the UART and having a TERM slot in the global database. I added a series of commits that work in the suggested direction they can be seen here:

https://github.com/micropython/micropython/pull/2891

I know the team is busy with other things at the moment and this PR is very complex, it appears to work for me and I have been using it but it would be great to get some other folks who have interest contributing here just by using it and creating a dialog on that PR to help sort out if we want it or not.
