Back in the mists of time around 1995-95 there was a long, tiresome
thread on either comp.unix.bsd.netbsd.misc or on a NetBSD mailing
list about identd. The thread was dominated by none other than
Dan Bernstein.

Near the end of the thread someone said they were going to write an identd
in PERL that merely returned "DJ Bernstein" as it's answer.
