I thought about writing a server-starter GUI so that command line
wouldn't even be necessary.  But I decided I like TCPWatch how it is
already.  It's simple and to the point.

It should work with most TCP protocols including smtp, imap, pop-3,
ssh, ZEO, and even that new multi-stream protocol announced recently. 
It might have troubles with ftp, however.

BTW it uses decimal rather than octal to encode control characters,
which doesn't follow the "standard" but rather my own preference. :-) 
It should probably be a command-line option.
