That sounds like an excellent idea!  But maybe the default should be to allow
finger connections unless there is a ".fdeny" in the users home directory...
And does this work for local users as well?  Ie: Is it in the finger command, 
or in the fingerd daemon?  What does everyone else think?

Chris D.  Any chance I can get that account on sun-lamp now?  I have some
plans on finishing this up, maybe importing/porting a graphics library, and
adding a bunch of device drivers for different ethernet cards.  I have this
machine for development, but I would like to be able to keep the source in
a common place, even if you don't want to give out commit-privs, at least
that way someone can check my code in when they think it is ready.
