Re: [bug-inetutils] [patch] inetd: set environment variables for remote host, ip and local port

I have just developed some very simple servers (with shell scripts)
which are run via inetd. For logging purposes I wanted to have the
remote hostname, ip and local port available in those shell scripts
and have made an extension to inetd which will put this information
into the environment on the forked process.
Wouldn't it be better to provide this information in log (if it isn't
provided already)? And then just use grep to get that data? I'm a bit
sceptical to exporting envars like this.
