I appreciate your detailed description of output buffer flushing in
telnet. I'd like to point out to other readers that your work
apparently did not involve any extensions to the protocols. I feel it
necessary to make this comment because the last few days have been
filled with various proposals for inventing new mechanisms to do
something for which there is an existing one. So we need to make it
clear to people that your posting is not another such proposal: it
describes correct implementation of the existing telnet sync
mechanism.
