Is there some reason to put this in netstat, rather than installing
a precompiled lsof? (I think there _used_ to be a precompiled lsof, at least
for x86es...)

Netstat is already using all of an 80-column display. Showing the
protocol-block address is useful, (e.g. for trpt) and is enough
to let you find the pid (e.g., using fstat)  . What else would you
displace from the current netstat output?
