And we don't bother changing those #defines into anything more than trival
wrappers until much later.

Hmm, if you loose your connection, then your telnet session dies.
Under linux it just hangs, which is much scarier, but at least
you can resume work when you reconnect.  This (as I found out yetserday)
is very useful if you are halfway through writing an email over
telnet.  Unfortunately I learned this the hard way as this
is a '95 box I am telnetting from.
