I thought dropping uppercase only login in getty was gratuitous, but
that was just because I have an ASR-33. I can understand nobody agrees.
But rlogin/rsh has a call to getprogname() in it, so you could use the
file namespace to link the command into the hosts and to get to some
ln `which rsh` /usr/hosts/hosta
$ hosta <cmd> # morally equivalent
# to rsh `whoiami`@hosta cmd
why doesn't SSH have this meme?
is this a false meme? is this such a bad idea? I liked this idea.
this was a good berkely-ism. Why do we always loose good ideas?
