I just timed inc ... to go to my POP server, which included Kerberos
authentication (4 extra round trips), download a small test message
(session was encrypted), write it out (to a network filesystem, no less),
and exit, it took:

        0.04 real         0.01 user         0.00 sys

Are you really THAT impatient, Bill? :-)  Ok, fine ... going across the
global internet for all that will be a lot worse.  But most of the time
I never notice it unless there's a problem.
