The packages libident (implementing RFC 1413) and qident (using this library) are placed in the directory "security". The ident protocol provides no form of security, and as far as I can see, these programs don't add any additional functionality that might enhance the protocol.

Move these packages to "net", joining alternative implementations fair-identd, nidentd and oidentd.

this should be done. but, we really need to get version control with rename
support before doing noncritical reorganizations.

so I'm going to mark this suspended, as that will vastly increase the chance
of it being found again later and handled when the time comes.
