#$" ...


	I'm assuming that the prefix #$" only designates "like, uh, 
rilly in-band" AFTER the MCP/2.1 session has been established (in
section 2.1 Network Line Translation).  Until then neither side of
the connection knows for certain what it's talking to and should
not apply any special meaning to #$".

I see no cause for an MCP/2.1 aware client to impose the translation
layer behaviour upon the connection until absolutely necessary.
This should probably be explicit in the spec.

#$" sucks too, #$#" would be more in keeping with the spirit of
the beast with '"' becoming a mandatory message like ':' and '*'.
Too late on that score.
