Good point.  Sometimes, like the web page, it is GNU internet utilities.

I think InetUtils is my fault: it only occurs in libtelnet/.

Comparing the situation with GNU coreutils, which has a long name of
'GNU core utilities', I suggest we use 'GNU Inetutils', 'Inetutils', or
'inetutils' as appropriate, with a long name of 'GNU network utilities'.

This would result in two minor actions:
1) Changing InetUtils to Inetutils in libtelnet/.
2) Changing 'GNU internet utilities' to 'GNU network utilities' on the
web page.
