I'll admit to being old, but at one time fortune2 was supposed to be for
longer fortunes while fortune was for one or two line entries. At one
time fortune2 had some rather long entries. This is less important now
than it was when we were (OK, I was) logging in on an ASR33 and it took
8 seconds for a full line of text.
Do we really want to merge them? (Probably) But should we think about
keeping fortune as a separate file with all messages from fortune2 that
are less than about 200 characters. After all, some folks are still on
fairly slow links.
