There've been a few changes to e.g. admit the possibility of using IP6, 
and I've added a bit of stuff related to Telnet (not very good, I'd 
hasten to say, but enough to do a specific job).

My understanding is that lnet is not formally part of FPC, but is 
included as a convenience. It is outside the usual package scheme, and 
is part of neither the RTL nor FCL.

So irrespective of lnet's merits, if there's a conflict with any part of 
the RTL or FCL, it loses.
