> So systemd would need to do this too: bind an arbitrary port, register that port with rpcbind, and start rpc.statd when traffic arrives on that socket. (...) Whether it is worth adding this functionality to systemd for the two or maybe three services that would use it is hard to say.

Well, only upstream can answer that. You should ask on the systemd-devel mailing list.

Clearly, what is needed is to incorporate the functionality of portmap/rpcbind within systemd's PID 1 itself. We could call this "portmap activation".

(I might or might not be joking.)

That's absolutely not what the author meant :

This would be one time process for "rpc-sockets" which is really close to the already include socket activation. This could be added as an option to the current socket unit I think.
