yeah but the perception is that a socket accepting connections like that IS
geared to telnet and telnet does by and large seem to work the last time I
tried. (Admittedly, being aware that netcat is the RIGHT solution I use
that on the rare occasion that I want to play with this stuff, so it's a
while since I tried telnet.)

I have also seen an implementation of an onscreen remote that piped
commands to telnet, again some time ago. Wrong maybe but it did nothing to
dispel the telnet "myth".
