It could use some love, but not right now. There are pieces I'd like to change.
I think it's safe to assume that every terminal now has at least some measure of ANSI compatibility, don't you think? Anyone still using a vintage Wyse or Televideo at this point is probably running "screen" to translate vt100/ansi style terminal control into their native language.

That being the case, it seems as if we could do a few *simple* tricks, such as moving the cursor up a line when the user backspaces over a line break.

Almost 35 years ago, one dude arbitrarily made the decision that a hard line break consisted of a newline followed by a space. I want to get rid of that, as well as the proprietary format it generates inside of Citadel. I'd like to replace it with "Content-type: text/plain; format=flowed" which is standardized, understood by lots of third party client agents, and degrades flawlessly to plain text with a fixed column width.

Jeff Prothero and Hue White are not deities and their design decisions are not set in stone forever. Citadel is 100% ours now and we do what we want with it.

What am I doing wrong with the text client?

Nothing ... for some reason we're not listening on 504 right now, and I don't have time to take a maintenance window to troubleshoot it.
