Sure, go ahead.  Getting something out in 30 seconds was all I was
interested in at the time.

The handleOggV function in ntserv/socket.c is only defined if either
BASEPRACTICE, NEWBIESERVER or PRETSERVER are defined.  This may not be
sufficient, but it could be a good start.  The function sets PFBPROBOT
bit in p_flags.  Checking this bit may be a better approximation.

I don't think people with a login of "robot" are a problem, although
they may fairly soon learn that this means their slot on the server
is under-reported.  It will be self correcting, perhaps.

I don't have one.  Maybe Bob does?
