It's overzealous and I knew that when I wrote it, but the alternative was
worse.  If you use:

        setsockopt(s, SOL_SOCKET, SO_KEEPALIVE, (char *) &opt, sizeof(opt))

        where 'opt' is 'int opt = 1' and 's' is their socket,

you'll limit your characters to 15 minutes of dead time if they lag out or
lose their connection but the MUD insists they're still there.
