Yeah - I should know that list of alternate null modems by heart; in the 1990s I was teaching that stuff to engineering students. All the different alternatives for flow control.

Soldering it was a minor problem, compared to making the students understand the need for flow control - and the need for so many different mechanisms. With X-ON / X-OFF (software control) coming in as yet another alternative.

The survey you link to is a good description of the issues. Recommended reading for anyone who needs to use COM port communication anno 2019.
