wget works much like wget does in *nix, although it's much simpler.
typing "wget some://url:port" will output the contents of that URL on
standard out.

This is one of the new "utilities" that use a virtual channel to
communicate with things on the server side.  others include an FTP
client, file transfer from server to coco, and commands to configure
the drivewire server itself.

These things all use one of the virtual channels, and as I believe
Boisy has configured them all to be telnet ports, there aren't any
available for this, so probably won't work in this demo.
