A while back I created a package that does this. After reading your message I cleaned it up a little and contributed it to the Mathematica InfoCenter <http://library.wolfram.com>, but it has not yet been posted. In the mean time you can download it here <http://members.wolfram.com/schofield/SerialIO.zip>. Unzip, place the folder in $[User]BaseDirectory/Applications, then load with <<SerialIO`. The SerialIO directory contains a simple example notebook. Currently it works with Mac OS X and Linux (x86). I can add support for Windows and possibly other Unix platforms at request.
