i've mentioned a couple ideas on the users mailing list.  you can do a
search on the main page to find stuff.  dedicated, protected, networks

'ctrl-e', 'c', '.' is the default sequence.  the console.man page
should fill in all the details about what a client can do - everything is
accessed via 'ctrl-e', 'c' by default.
