Patch incorporated, so this is now purely archival material.
python telnetlib fix
Purpose Fix python's telnetlib specifically its IAC handling.
telnetlib is unable to connect to a few telnet daemons because of
improper IAC handling, this is a oneliner to reject WILL messages
which then allows many more (all ?) telnet daemons to work with it,
namely fixes interaction with FreeBSD.
