If the mod3 compiler can be ported without too much grief, and cvsup
runs better than cvs does, I think this would actually be a win.
I have a limited number of hours per month on my ISP (the reasons I stay
here are probably way too trivial, but I'm damned if I'm giving up a
static IP address), so my idle timeout is two and a half minutes, typically.

But even if I run a loop to keep the connection open (by not remaining
idle), I get

	Read from remote host Connection reset by peer.

Every Single Goddamn Time.

Is there a flaw in our NAT implementation, should I talk to my ISP,
or what?  This is just not a replacement for sup in my case.
At least 8 hours later a 'sup -avsz' completes.
