Re: force_input()...

While annoying the hell out of my GF last night, I made an interesting
discovery.  When someone has something ;force_input()ed to them, their
idle time isn't affected.  Is this intentional, overlooked, or just
unsolvable?  Just curious, is all, as this could be used as proof of a
force_input on some occasions..

You'll note that if you hit enter while connected, your idle time is zeroed
without you executing a command.  It is not difficult, however, to program
$bf_idle_time and $bf_force input to zero idle_time, if that is desired. 
However, the _actual_ idle_time is most useful in determining whether a
connection is dead or not.
