       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.

I find it easier to install lsh or ssh even on a small internal
network; then I can also just use a public key and ignore any annoying
password prompts...

   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.

Ok, I'll leave them.

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

Lovley.  Thank you.  (just don't remove the [bug-inetutils] bit in the
subject, it is immensly useful :-)
