Negative. The protocol is really that useless. The only advantage that you
might have is to see libwrap syslog-entries as userschnick.host if you
trust the host that has been asked, but _only_ if you trust it.
Considering that some of the implementions allow users to have their
config file that is being looked up by the server, it's rendered useless
again if not otherwise configured.
The thread-safe segfault suicide when you try to overflow the input might
be just as useful as the protocol.
