Announcing the netrek lurk program, which can be used to wait for t-mode
on a server, by using an observer slot, while displaying game messages
on a text console.

Download the program from

md5sum faa02f683cd4b9800571e97bb6621fa6

Usage instructions are in the start of the file.  Edit the configuration
variables to your requirement and then start the program, for example:

	lurk.py pickled.netrek.org

Patches welcome, relative to my darcs repository,

The program can also be trivially adapted to obtain the MOTD of a server
and then exit.

Not yet tested on a server with an observer wait queue.

Only tested on Linux.  Should work on Windows and MAC OS X provided
there is a Python environment.
