I was thinking of things like ypbind, which does not do a bind(0), but generates its own "random" port, and it
will grab that port if you don't do anything in userspace to prevent it. I'm perfectly aware that this
is not the case that is intended to be addressed by this patch. But if you want to solve
this problem, why not the one that is addressed by the patch?
I must be starting to sound like I have something against this patch, which is not the case, so I'll
drop it here.
