Sure.  netcat, et al., do make it possible to initiate outbound connections.

Maybe it's the fog in my brain at the moment, but I don't see how to 
connect netcat's STDIO to another process cleanly.  Maybe I need to 
think more about the following hypothetical example:

  · netcat's STDOUT to grep's STDIN
  · grep's STDOUT to netcat's STDIN

Where netcat listens on a port and grep does some useful work over the 
stream coming through netcat.

Thank you for prodding my brain Richard.
