This is already possible in lots of clients. I use TinyFugue myself, with
some macros a friend of mine wrote, which opens an Xterm with the verb code
in it. After editing the verb it sends TF the SIGUSR, and tf loads in the
verb and @progs it. I hear there are also Emacs macros for this kind of
thing, and several Windows clients (though i doubt they are as versatile as
TF :-) (BTW, there are lots of 'specialized telnet clients' though not all
of them support local editing (which requires a quote function and a trigger
function, and the ability to make macros) -- they are generally called 'MUD
clients' :-)
