Thanks for those. Yeah, about that last one, while they look pretty
stable, they might change.

I have approached someone on the glibc team about taking the patch,
but they might also not be interested because of potential future
changes to Wireshark, so will have to play that by ear.

If that is the case, perhaps we can add rpcgen (and the source) to
Wireshark as a tool.
