Wow!
Even /etc/services from Mac OS/X (in turn taken from FreeBSD) has many
more entries.

[id-est:ws/trunk/wiretap] lego% sed 's/#.*//; s/[ \t]+//;'
/etc/services | grep -v -c '^$'
8059
[id-est:ws/trunk/wiretap] lego% sed 's/#.*//; s/[ \t]+//;'
../../../nmap-4.20/nmap-services | grep -v -c '^$'
2273

This has no (c) notice so I believe we we can use it.
