net/mosh: confusing MESSAGE?

When installing net/mosh, the following message appears:

$NetBSD: MESSAGE,v 2012/07/20 03:15:29 agc Exp $

To invoke the server, you need to use a UTF-8 character set, and
a hard-coded string of "new" (to make mosh-server use getopt). e.g.

	% env LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8" mosh-server new -i
	MOSH CONNECT 60001 2zDOoujUVJ1AW4YFYw36sg

and to connect to that server, the invocation is

	% env LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8" MOSH_KEY=2zDOoujUVJ1AW4YFYw36sg \
		mosh-client 60001

Please note that this package uses UDP, and so packets may be filtered
in certain environments.

I feel like this message is more confusing than anything else. AIUI, the intended use of mosh is as a drop-in replacement of ssh, i.e. you run „mosh hostname“. This logs in via ssh and sets up the server connection.

How about just removing the message?
