Well, `netstat -a` is somewhat useful when the connection actually exists.

And perhaps there are better ways to use netstat ... I'm not very experienced with netstat.

But consider the case that innfeed is using an interface that is rejected by the peer.
Then the connection is very very short, and it is hard to catch it with netstat -a
to discover what is going on.

Thus I perceive a need for innfeed to be able to report what it is using
perhaps even in the innfeed.stat report
