I'm afraid he's being wildly optimistic. The time to kill rlogin and
friends was five minutes before the 4.2 tapes started shipping. It's
far too late now.

You wound me, sir. I said something nice about Berkeley just last year. :-)

Actually, they've done a lot of good stuff, and the world is better off
with them than without them, but the world (especially the networking
world) would be a nicer place if some of the effort that went into
(e.g.) 1986's wonderful new ideas had gone into rethinking and cleaning
up (e.g.) 1985's.
