Task list and progress:

- single download spiffy client, happening, beta done,
- test spiffy client on 95, 98, and NT, yet to start,
- tutorial, yet to start,
- server in download, needs porting work, no fork() to dup() fd's,
- server with small map, yet to start, low priority.

Let's just do it.  ;-)
