I think finger at least should be downgraded to optional at this point.
How many people still run a finger server? Stanford has one, I suppose,
as a different interface to public whois servers, but it's not a finger
server in the classic sense.
I'm not *as* sure about sharutils, since between unshar and uudecode I
still end up using it at least once a year, but those are rather obsolete
at this point and I only use them with software I'm digging out of pretty
obscure corners. The average Linux server is not going to need them.
