Should it be around the whole command loop?  Do we want ^C when reading a 
command to start over reading a command or exit?  I vote for try again.  I'll 
use ^D if I want to exit.

Is DNS lookup called by any other commands?  What's the longest timeout if 
the target doesn't respond?  (30 seconds on my system.)  ...

Does the hostname command do the lookup right then or wait until the next 
time it tries to send a packet?  I vote that ^C cover that DNS lookup.  (If I 
typo a host that should be in the local list, it goes out to the net.  That 
can take a long time.  I'd like to be able to ^C out of that lookup.)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
