I don't have anything in mind right now, but when my current task list
is done, I've been thinking about different projects that would be
fun.  Finally performing the much-needed surgery on the remaining
inetutils bits could be interesting.

I think this is not necessarily true.  Some FTP sites are extremely
high volume.  Some gopher server might get unluckely referenced on
slashdot.  I also think that a web page pointing to a TFTP server
would be much more efficient than how we currently do anonymous FTP.
Especially if the TFTP server was configured to automatically
disconnect after every transfer.

It's a thought anyway...

Abandon the search for truth; settle for a good fantasy.
