      What hassles?

      Back in the days, I had sites with literally 100s of terminals. Then,
      the only issue was keeping the cables all sorted from terminals to the
      systems. LAT, terminal servers, and ethernet greatly simplified that.

      As for modern terminals, I know a source for new VT series terminals.
