Do NOT implement EITHER a telnet server OR client UNLESS you are committed
to a FULL telnet protocol implementation.  There are far too many things
out there already that CALL themselves telnet that do NOT talk real telnet
(Like, 95% of all Win95 "telnet" programs.)

(Kin you tell I been through this frustration?  This is what killed my
first cold windowing project.)
