[rc5] Proxyper & rc5 client

The best solution until v 2 is to run Tim C's clients under NT and 95.  They exit very gracefully, they buffer blocks on the disk so nothing is lost, and they are faster.  Use 'x' or '!' to kill the clients and then kill the proxy.

It should be...  That is why when something is really hung (eg, a telnet
connection that you don't want to wait for DNS resolutiont to fail ;) and
you try to end task, you get a "program not responding, end task, or wait"
dlg. box.

So, it would seem that windows is sending some kind of soft-kill signal,
then, if that doesn't work, asking if you want to send a hard-kill.

Let us go.  Let us leave this festering hell hole.  Let us think the
unthinkable, let us do the undoable.  Let us prepare to grapple with the
ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.
