Now that systemd is used by default, I think it is time to deprecate
For those unfamiliar with it, portreserve is a small utility which binds
specific network ports early on during the boot process, so that
services using those ports can claim them when they start. The point is
to avoid accidental clashes when services use random unbound privileged
Currently portreserve has a SysV initscript. It doesn't make a lot of
sense to migrate it to a systemd service unit because of the fact that
systemd avoids the problem.
Any objections to this?
