In your previous mail, you also speak about text based protocols being easier
to debug because we can use telnet but there is some problem here:
1) you cannot use telnet on DC protocol because telnet sends the command after
a "return" and because the end of command is "|" in DC, you will have a LF in
the buffer at the beginning of the next command

Telnet has this problem, but nc (NetCat) doesn't - I successfully used it to
log in to a few hubs which don't do $Key checking, and even managed to chat.
Wasn't pleasant, but it worked.
