Indeed, "master" in itself is used in a wide range of contexts and can have quite positive connotations (I master Python programming).

The word "slave" I agree with removing if used gratuitously. If its use reflects an established convention which we do not have power to change, then we should probably keep using it for the sake of clarity (for example in the openpty case, since we're merely exposing a glibc function).
