Heh - I didn't even think about that when I switched from BB to Hobbit.  I
just carried over the "telnet:1494" tag for a couple of our hosts and found
it worked quite well.  I *think* there's a Citrix server on that port, given
that it returns "ICA" along with a few binary characters.

I guess I should do that check properly...  :)
