	The DOS version used the IBM extended character set to make a
little heart shape.  The POSIX version couldn't count on the character
set used by the terminal, and thus that was compromised.  I hope I
speak for all of us in the bludgeoning RFK community when I say that I
encourage the inclusion of robot-kitten love indicators in all existing
and future ports.
