	Two processes can't grab the same address.port, but one
process can grab *.port and another can grab address.port. The one
that grabs address.port *should* have precedence. I haven't heard of
any kernels for which this isn't the case, but maybe this behavior is
"fixed" in linux because it is a "security hole".

	(You can subvert NFS if you have a user account on the NFS
server.. NFS traditionally binds to *.2049, so if your user process
binds to address.2049 then you can respond to NFS requests yourself.)
