Don't lock yourself out

Suppose you have a remotely accessible serial console device, connecting to, among other devices, a switch. It is not a Good Idea to have the connection going to the serial console device to be on that switch: if you mess up the configuration of the switch (accessed via the console, through itself), you can lock yourself out. D'oh!
