Cool!!! This is more along the lines I was thinking. Window=1,
MTU=256, ... :-)

I didn't say, but DG RDOS supports two users; foreground and
background. I would run a INET.SV program in the background
terminal and it would "serve" stuff accessible to that user.
Wouldn't require RDOS to cooperate much, be reentrant, etc.
There's already no concept of security or authentication, so the
internet utility would do literally everything.
