just for a starting point (they're not programs that I port), I put a
zips of unmap and slowcat in ftp://dickey.his.com/ncurses

map/unmap are filters that convert to/from escape sequences, and slowcat
uses a time-delay between characters, e.g.,
        slowcat -9 typescript
goes v e r y   s l o w l y.

(if there's enough interest, I may package them more neatly)
