thank you for that patch :) This scratches an itch I've had for some
time, too. I never did anything about it, though, since just telnet'ing
to the appropriate port worked for me ;)

Your code looks fine to me :) I've found one missing "break", but that's
it. I'm a bit concerned about using "getopt_long", since - to the best
of my knowledge - that's a GNU extension and not portable. Unless I'm
mistaken I will probably remove the long option names and go back to

I've applied the patches to the master branch and pushed them to my Git
