I use kde. After installing your gnome-user-share it i couldn't find how to 
start it. I found a configuration window but netstat -l doesn't show anything 
Also no man page provided -> too complex for me, really.

The netcat thing is much easier. At least man nc exists.

Long example:
i own a box that has no screen and uses ssh. There are many entries in 
/etc/shadow but only one of the users knows the root password.

I didn't do the ITP.

You could indeed suggest that, but some people just don't have enough time or 
skills to be usefull in a core package, and your proposal wouldn't lead to a 
better maintenance of core packages but just to the dropping of less important
