ack. sorry to be the source of potential fud.
what i meant was that there's a lot of functionality that i no longer
want or need so i'd rather not install it.
screen is a great program, but for the particular case of working from
virtual terminals where i may be typing sensitive information, i'm on
the side of paranoid ;-)
my apologies for any confusion.
