a) RFC865 says that quotes should be less than 512 bytes so fortune -s
is probably more appropriate
b) Even though RFC865 doesn't require it, the quote service should
really produce NETASCII output, so perhaps it should be piped
through sed s/$/^M/ or something.
c) do we need a simple standard udpcat(1) so we can implement a UDP
qotd server, etc in shell scripts ?
