I didn't get the message by T.SHIOZAKI that Johan is quoting below, so
I'm replying to Johan's message...
As you probably could tell from my commit message, I was not happy with
the fingerd change myself. I just wanted to have a quick hack to make
myself happy by seeing 8-bit data from fingerd. I should have taken the
two more minutes that it took to do it right.
I just committed a -8 option to finger(1) and fingerd(8), which enable
true 8-bit pass-through. The -i option is gone from fingerd(8).

| I think so too. Only the client needs to look at the data.
