Hi all,
there's a discussion on hackers at xxxxxxxxxxx about
importing OpenBSD's netcat into FreeBSD. I consider
it a very useful and powerful tool, small enough
to be part of our base system as well. An alternative
candidate Andreas Hauser suggested was ttcp, which
offers a similiar feature set.
	It would be nice to have kttcp.  Not very hard
	to port, just tedious. ;)  Nice for loopback
	performance testing.
