Just now got this working, it's great. Notes:
* If you are having problems connecting, restart your Kindle. Security policy appears to be loaded at boot, so changes you make don't take effect until a restart.
* Use this version, some people may have missed it, but it fixes a button problem:

* I have added this line to /etc/inittab:
It lets me use KindleTerm to connect to localhost, but connecting the USB cable switches me to mass-storage mode by default. Best of both worlds (for now).
* Question(s): Where do I put commands to run on login? (.shrc and .profile are not working.) And then, once I have a working profile, how can I get /var/tmp/root persistent across reboots? Symlink to /mnt/us/<folder> would be a cool option except that fat32 is case-insensitive...
