I think so. The sh/log functions (of which sh/talk is one) is supposed 
to provide a complete record of stuff that happened. The problem I had 
to solve (because of some abuse that was going on at the time) was that 
that people were sending inappropriate talks outwards to users on other 
nodes. These were not being logged at the originating end.

The consequence being, that for local -> local talks, you get both input 
and output, as opposed to local -> remote / vice versa: just one or the 

You can always type sh/talk 20 or 100...
