Well, gkermit, actually, not full kermit.  The license on gkermit is
acceptable for inclusion in base and gkermit is very, very small -- plus
it can be configured to throw files across almost any serial connection,
however damaged, which is very valuable at times.  The alternatives, like
lrzsz, can't do that (and are larger, too).

It's saved my butt on several occasions, which is why I included it.
