Ahhh...  Mark V Shaney...  I knew Bruce Ellis, and I wheedled the source 
code out of him (with the proviso that I never use it on Usenet) in order 
to use it on a victim on another medium (Amateur packet radio).

Skilfully forging his callsign (and the path), his colleagues thought that 
he was drunk :-)

Source code now lost, dammit...
