The sysadmin can also allow/disallow this behaviour by way of command
Currently, I run it from inetd with /usr/sbin/ident2 ident2 -i -n
(allow reading of ~/.ident, and ~/.noident, respectively).
So, if I ran it with just /usr/sbin/ident2 ident2, it would ignore
~/.ident and ~/.noident, and always give the real reply. just -i would
make it ignore .noident, so you always get an ident reply, fake or not,
and just -n would make it ignore ~/.ident, so you either get the real
reply or none at all. Good for paranoid sysadmins, so they can tell
who's doing the skr1p7 k1dd13 shiite on IRC, or something.
