[snip: longer description about how the port-number lookup works]
Do I correctly understand your point to be that I've missed is the
*listing* of running services, in addition to single lookups?
Was Steve's point, then, that using portmap for anything that requires
only a single port number - rather than a listing of all running
services - is "way overkill"?
