   Yah, I axed UUCP, though there were a few things that still had
   to be kept, like 'rmail'.  I might also have to bring back 'cu' but
   I'd rather somebody just enhance 'tip' with cu-like abilities instead
   (e.g.  -l line option, clocal operation for immunity from hangups, etc).

   Getting rid of uucp was a relief.  Nobody in the right mind uses uucp
   any more, or if they do it really ought to be a port instead of base
   (and this is from the guy who wrote AmigaUUCP so I have some authority
   on the matter!).
