    Hm.  Was thinking that we could remove the r* utilities, is anyone
    actually using those?  

Aside from the case of old machines that Debarshi mentioned, they can
still be useful in a small internal network environment where all hosts
(and the wire) can be trusted.

In general, they have been around forever.  I think it would be a
mistake to delete them.  Hopefully they do not take much maintenance
effort at this point.


P.S. I removed the verbose four-line mailman footer for bug-inetutils.
If anyone really misses it, let me know :).
