This seem like a good thing!

However, depending on RULI for DNS SRV seem overkill.  Support for SRV
can be written in about 100 loc.  See for example:

However there exists a close-to-standard API for SRV, in contrib/srv/
in older BIND releases.  I think we should make a gnulib module out of
similar code, and then inetutils can use it.  I'm going to propose
this module now, for my own projects, and if inetutils find it useful,
it can be used by inetutils too.
