Given that none of the upstream libc maintainers who I've seen voice an opinion appear to be in the slightest bit enthusiastic about such a solution I would not be optimistic about the chances of it being implemented and deployed in the immediate future. See for example the discussion at: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=103401 In an ideal world dynamic services would have a range of ports reserved for them. We're quite a way away from an ideal world here. -- "You grabbed my hand and we fell into it, like a daydream - or a fever."
