Agreed! It's their fault, but I believe that having netstat look for
a matching rpc service before relying on a static service table is
an advantage. This way the netstat user is also able to syntactically
distinguish between names obtained through getrpcportnam() vs.

Are there other reasons - reserved for sticking to an established
output format - not to modify netstat's behavior?

Thanks for the pointer!
