See the ChangeLog for bpl12.  Jeremy sites Van Jacobson's tcpdump tool
as his source for statistics (pre and post change), so that might be
something to look into for getting more detailed statistics than
George's byte written count.

IMO, the new way of prompt handling makes more sense (just append it
to the regular output if the player is getting it, that way we don't
have to call a seperate write() for each player that got output).
