[nos-bbs] JNOS2 how to add applications?

So I have a few inetd based or telnet reachable applications on the
jnos2 host system and will be adding more.

One is a QRZ call sign lookup app and the other is just a telnet link
to a local dx cluster.

I'd like to enable these as added shortcuts in the mailbox area for a user.

How do I do this?

Linux 'node' has ExtCmd and Alias options in a config to define added
apps and a similar .hlp file structure to jnos, but I haven't found
how to hook/define my own app links into jnos2 so far.

Also, in jnos2 console, it captures the terminal, curses style, how do
I scroll back for things that went out of the screen visible buffer?
I'm in linux, and run it in an xterm generally and normal scroll back
keystrokes don't work.

And I'm unsure why, but jnos2 doesn't like to be brought up on a linux
box that has also had the 'native' linux ax25 running on it.  I get
weird latency with the generation of packets, symptom is the txdelay
even at 350ms can be too short, then at other times, it's too long, or
the txtail isn't long enough for a packet to complete at times.  So a
fresh reboot of the system fixes this I've found.  And yes, I'm sure
all the userspace soundmodem and other ax25d and similar netromd
processes are killed even when I have this issue.  As long as I don't
bring up the native linux ax25 daemons, jnos2 can be brought up and
down at will and work fine.

If anyone is having odd timing issues with jnos2, after having used
the built in linux processes, try a clean reboot, it works here.

My configuration is Ubuntu 9.10, latest compiled userspace soundmodem,
and a Tigertronics USB as the interface.  Also latest compiled jnos2
'h' I think.
