they were added to clogin because some boxes were echo'g strangely and in
some cases would drop chars at the end of a line.  slowing it down, made
it behave more often than not.  but, what i mean there is the actual --
part, not the -h.

as for its heavier use in flogin, i do not recall and its not in the commit
log, so I do not know.  so, it could be removed, worth experimentation, but
might break collection of some boxes.

the values of send_human can be adjusted too,
current: {.4 .4 .7 .3 5}

perhaps: {.2 .3 5 .2 3}
