Hmm.  It's hard to imagine when you would want INN to listen on multiple
ports, really.  I mean, some crazy thing like you have two network
interfaces and 119 is firewalled on one of them, I guess.  I can't work up
much energy about this, though.

There is some benefit to nnrpd on multiple ports (different 
configurations, some with SSL some without, whatever).  But I can't see as 
it's a big problem just to have several nnrpd's listening (if you use 
daemon mode; if not just configure inetd as appropriate), right?
