There are a couple of pieces available:

* Ian's VT* emulators and TelnetMachine (can be used to interpret 
cursor motions, and maintain a character map)
* the SerialPort (which, alas, must be polled (anyone up for making a 
blocking SerialPort implementation using the async file support?)

But you'd have to interpret what was being presented on the screen 
somehow in order to make sense of it.

In a sense, you'd need a screen *de*composition program...
