All of the pseudo-tty allocation code *should* now be going through 
the openpty() in libutil (src/lib/libutil/pty.c), so it's feasible 
that adjusting the cp1 & cp2 loops in there will have the desired 
results (after rebuilding/installing the world).

You'll probably need to adjust /etc/ttys too, but I *think* that's 
about it.
