Telnet is a fantastic network service debugging tool, hence should always
remain included. Eg telnet xyz 80 to check if the web server is responding,
whether there’s a sensible response etc.

But yes, using it as it’s original intent is hopefully not supported
anywhere. That’s what ssh is for these days.
