Actually, I've been considering locking both lockd, mountd and statd to given
ports (see bugs #231074 and #289958, for instance) by default, but there are
two things that must be considered first:
1. What ports? Is there anything remotely standardized? Can I just grab a
few ports that look unused?
2. The nfs-utils maintainer's opinion about the whole issue; I've been
working a bit on the package, but he still has the final word :-)
BTW, this would probably have been more appropriate as a bug (possibly
wishlist) against nfs-utils.
