My interface just passes the command straight through,
so shouldn't be a problem at all.

Also, I have some Python cgi's and commandline
scripts at http://techweb.rfa.org/staff/bill/videolan
that work directly with the existing telnet.cpp
interface - definitely easier than using telnet
directly.  I should add cookie support to save

import Cookie, cgi


if form.has_key("user"):
if form.has_key("password"):

print C.output()

Wow, that was tough....maybe I'll add it myself :)
