It has more missing features, compared to the Taylor version, like the
unability to run an external program with stdin and stdout piped to
the remote end simultaneously (like a local "sz" Z-modem program),
plus it has this annoying startup message "can't open log file
/var/log/aculog" (why should it be able to open it at all?).

I wish the Taylor version hadn't been thrown overboard at all.  We
used to have two alternatives, cu and tip.  Now we only have tip and
tip. :(  (I doubt tip has actually less security bugs than Taylor cu.
If we threw out all the BSD-originating programs that once experienced
a security problem, we would rather quickly end up with a skeleton
that could hardly be named `Unix' anymore...)

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
