There's another perfectly good version of "cu" available to us in the BSD
sources; we still ship "tip" from there. Not to mention that using cu vs.
tip is largely a matter of personal preference; they both do the same job.
If we want to include a tiny serial thing in the base distribution, I'd say
the miniature version of kermit ("gkermit") that's freely licensed (compared
to the rather restrictive C-Kermit license) would be a much better choice.
