Vasco and I were talking about a special admin port.
This would allow you to get information out of the server (number of
players, number of AI, year, turns etc. etc.)  And also allow you to
send a popup window to all players.  This would be immensly helpful
on a public server.

The problem comes in the implementation.  If there are 10 civservers
running, what port is it on?  I suppose it could be another port chosen
on the command line.  I also think it should be a socket that speaks
straight ASCII.

Now that I have put all that in words, I guess it would make sense to
include all these commands into the server, then allow the binding of
stdin/stdout to the admin socket.  Its not that complicated when you
look at it that way...
