I'm glad that you think that timelimit's functionality is better than
that of its netpipes equivalent, but if others don't share that opinion,
I could change the port so that the user may specify a program prefix
at build time. Still, I'd prefer to leave the default prefix empty :)

Oh! Of course, I, as the upstream author, would only be flattered if
people were to decide that timelimit is fit to enter the FreeBSD base
system :) And certainly I would be willing to maintain it myself
in that case; still, thanks a lot for the offer, and a helping hand
or three could never be too much :)
