     [nocol-users] Hostmon-client connection

Has anyone considered ripping out the telnet stuff from hostmon-client
and using inetd to serve up the file.  This could either be done
with a simple "cat" or invoking hostmon-client with a special option.

Obviously "cat" wouldn't check on who is connecting, but it could
be built into hostmon-client.

A benefit of this is that once the network connection is taken out
of hostmon-client, then the monitoring part could almost be run out
of cron (almost because currently it does keep some stats between
each run).

So what do people think of this idea?
