summary: rsh and rexec backends
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

There's no technical reason we shouldn't support rsh and rexec.  The only
difference between them is that rsh relies on privileged ports while
rexec passes a password.  Oh, and they run on different ports.  The
protocols are documented in the manual pages for rshd and rexecd.
Audit trail for this wish.
