I'm not sure if it is a good idea to keep Seyon as a port around at all.
IMO, it has outlived its use for a decade now and also has not been
under active development for more than 15 years. No idea what security
issues lie lurking in there.
Even though I provided the original port, I personally haven't used it
for the last fifteen years either and cannot even remember what I was
using it for back then :-|
