The author of ConNect (Wolfgang something I believe) was supposed to GPL
and deliver to me the sourcecode of connect several years ago but he
disappeared and no longer answers email.  One of the things I really
wanted was telnet support in connect, but as it turns out, there's a
newsgroup posts that indicates you can do it through the Coshy shell.
Well that would have been a big waste of time considering you can just
use MiNT telnet or even ssh!
