I don't think there are any great answers there.  The easy hack is to
mess with login scripts, but that would be visible to the user (if
they checked).  For a fair amount of extra effort, you could hack it
into login(1) itself.

Those are problems specific to "termlog"; since I never heard of it
until now, I don't know much, but on the first I would guess that it's
not opening the "real" terminal line.

Did you look at the watch(8) utility in the base system?
