Éric: there are devices that still only allow telnet.  Older cisco routers (*many* of which are still in the field) are just one example I'm familiar with.  I don't currently have any tools that use telnetlib to talk to them, but I've got at least two I'd like to find time to write...and I can easily imagine this limitation coming up as a real issue at Google :)
