When using the java.net classes for low level TCP/IP operations;
such as writing a server to implement a non Web related service,
there is a need to be able to get the port of a service.
The gethostbyname() and setservicebyname() C functions
are well-known examples. The InetAddress class has the getByName()
method, but we need a getServiceByName() method to allow client
programs to refer to the service by a published name, rather
than a hardcoded port address. This would also bring the net classes
more in line with the standard C implementation of sockets.

An equivalent of getservbyname would be desirable - see comments.
