Just dump it as a replacement in /etc (maybe making a copy of the old

I'd especially like to get some feedback from people using it on network
servers or monitoring machines where apps like nmap, tcpdump and
ethereral are run. My main interest is if any errors pop up and if
anyone gets performance problems (because for worst case scenarios it
can now take up to 15 times as long for getservbyname() to complete).
Thanks in advance,
I just ran an nmap of my network with the new file in /etc/services i scanned
a /24 subnet with 110 hosts in 310 seconds
a scan from october last year took 111 seconds with 105 hosts
