Thanks for the script -- I committed it (with some minor formatting
changes) as part of /etc/daily.

For people who still want the old verbose output of netstat, I've
added a "full_netstat" variable in daily.conf which they can set to
"YES", the default is "NO".

On my machines, the daily output now fits in less than a single
screen, is less than 80 columns wide, and contains the information I'm
actually interested in....
