 tcsh watch suggestion
Many people who have terminals/workstations in there offices, tend
to leave their sessions when they leave, i.e. they never logout.
"Watching" for them using the tcsh watch facility, is therefore
impossible.

Would it be possible to enhance watch so that it can be set to notify
on terminal activity (i.e. idle time as monitored by "finger" or "w"
going down to zero)?

Another nice addition would be "watching" for logins/terminal
activity on other machines across tcp-ip.  But this is probably
asking for too much.

The tcsh is already perhaps a bit bloated in this respect...a separate
program is probably more appropriate.
