Looks like a strict improvement, so:
Reviewed-by: Eric Blake <address@hidden>

That said, how does one enter a literal <ctrl-a> to the front end,
instead of getting it interpreted by the mux backend as a signal of
whether to rotate to the next front end?  Is <ctrl-a> an escaping
character, such that sending it twice results in a single instance being
sent to the current guest front end hooked up to the mux?
