	Also correct.

	The first "ban" reference above is the ban admin executable
	that allows temporary banning, expiring bans, listing bans,
	dumping bans, etc.  This resides in $(DESTIDIR)/$(LIBDIR)/tools.

	The second reference above is the script that's called via
	the in-game "admin ban" command.  This script also appears
	to be deprecated and does not add the ban to the etc/ip/deny
	directory but continues to add it to the etc/banned file
