With an acoustic coupler, or with a direct connection?  Do cordless

I was thinking direct connect; seems to me all you'd need is a small matching
transformer and some attenuation.

Bandwidth ought to be good for 1200 bd absolute worst case, but I'd be surprised
if you couldn't go faster. More research is needed...
