I'm not sure if telnet is symmetric - if it isn't, looks like we don't
have telnet client code. Even if it is, the current code needs work in
order to be usable for what you want (it's one of the more ancient parts
of Twisted.)

So, it seems writing a telnet client protocol (with similar methods to
telnetlib that return Deferreds instead of blocking?) is in order, or at
least a refacor of the current telnet code.
