Maybe, but at the end of the day, a serial port is just a serial port 
(over USB or not), you still end up with a "9-pin connector" on one end 
and a TTY interface on the other end (talking UNIX).

There are as well virtual serial ports and serial ports over network 
too. And I'm not talking about the generic TTY thingy, I'm talking about 
the "9-pin connector" devices.

My 2 cents.
