Thanks for the deprecation warning in previous releases... Oh yeah there
wasn't one.  nor is there anything to say this has been disabled in the
default config file in fact it's still there with a big fat warning about
the dangers of turning it on. I agree it's a security issue especially if
used incorrectly but then so is telnetd and I don't see anyone removing
that from the Debian repos any time soon. I now have two machines I'm
unable to monitor without a lot of faff. It's not like I can't recompile it
and enable it  again but that just wastes everyone's time. I do plan on
rewriting my 10000 lines of nagios configs to take this into account but
that's a mammoth task which requires some planning which could have been
done if users had been given a bit of prior warning.
