It's sometimes useful to use kermit over a serial console
to get software onto a remote host.
Would it be OK to add gkermit to the base system? See
From the ANNOUNCE file in the distribution:
G-Kermit is command-line only (no interactive commands or scripting)
and remote-mode only (no making connections). It has an extremely
simple user interface, and implements a large subset of the Kermit
protocol in a small amount of highly portable code.
I propose to put the sources in gnu/dist, a reachover Makefile in
gnu/usr.bin, install in /usr/bin/gkermit, and possibly add it to
