	Introduction of tcp command ``:tcp'' to systat makes it impossible to
	use the netstat mode specific ``:tcp'' command.

	From systat(1):
	protocol      Display only network connections using the indicated
	              protocol (currently either ``tcp'' or ``udp'').

	   1) Rename new (global) ``:tcp'' to something else
        or 2) Give netstat a ``:proto'' command.

	I'd vote for 1) being backwards compatible.
