-And finally, a sort-of 'period piece':
-
-EMR.ED                 A host is a host,
-                       From coast to coast
-                       And nobody talks to a host that's close,
-                       Unless the host that isn't close
-                       Is busy, hung, or dead.
-
-I would also like this new signal to be supported:
-
-SIGNUKE         Nuclear event occurred (cannot be caught or ignored :-)
