Summary: Line-based Telnet protocol plugin

Initial Comment:
What i'd like to see is a protocol plugin that supports a 
very simple version of Telnet, using the same interface 
as an instant message or chat window. This does not 
look like it would be a very difficult plugin to make, 
although it would be preferable (from my point of view, 
at least) not to have a prefix put in whenever something 
comes from the server. This plugin would make it 
possible to connect to MU* services.

Alternatively, a line-based terminal in an IM window 
would have pretty much the same effect. That is, the 
user can run a shell command, lines sent to this 
conversation are added to the text in the window and 
sent to the process' stdin, and it's stdout is written to 
the window.
Then normal telnet could be used to access the MU*. It 
might also be useful for users of other simple messaging 
systems that are command-line. Or, in fact, whatever 
else they wanted to use it for.

I'm intrigued by your suggestion.  Perhaps I can write
something for you, although my expertise lies mainly in
linux programming.
