hi everyone,
last week i was installing Gentoo on a brand new machine at work and i noticed 
againg that tcpdump and the telnet client are not available in the liveCD's 
environment. Why aren't they included? Is it about some policy or it's just 
nobody asked them yet?

I think tcpdump in particular should be added, sometimes it's necessary to 
check out network stuff at a lower level; the telnet client would be very 
useful too, none ever thinks to use it to connect to remote shells, but 
sometimes it can be very useful to check out services and stuff.

What do you think?
