I don't think Henry was looking for this... he said anything a player types,
and players can't "type" binary.  The <CR> is really just enter, which makes
$do_command()'s argstr to "".  Also, this eliminates any chances of using
default parsing, if do_command wants to use it.  I can't imagine why you
would want this done on the main login port.
