I didn't dare to ask if there was a suckless getty :) Thanks for that!

I could only test it briefly. At first it seemed to work as expected.
Then I realized that you cheated your way around asking for the
username. On Slackware /bin/login times out after 60 seconds which will
clutter the vt after a couple of minutes with timeout messages and login
prompts. So it seems that getty should ask for the username first even
if login could do it as well.
