Serial Port (New Features)

It would be great to have access to serial port (probably via a USB UART on laptops etc) this could operate as in Qbasic/GWbasic:

OPEN "COM[n]:[speed][,parity][,data] [,stop][,RS][,CS[n]][,DS[n]][,CD[n]][,LF] [,PE]" AS [#]filenum [LEN=number]

and then be treated as a file so read, write and close would operate on the handle.

this would give access to loads of interesting hardware e.g. temoerature sensors, GPS receivers and robots.
