tireIronNinja

So Dean made this sketchy program called "socketNinja", not really intending to distribute it, and then it became part(?) of Metasploit and distributed. The comments at the top were never updated, and remain:
# Yo yo, this be da socketNinja.
# Alpha-2.0 release
# Distribute and get a visit from tireIronNinja
which is fine and good until someone ITPs it for Debian and non-native English speakers on debian-legal try to unravel it. See the thread. I laughed.
