I think that is a better idea. But I don't know if worked before (I 
didn't check) and maybe some rely on the documented behavior. Also maybe 
some other system has the same feature to be same as. I didn't see the 
capabilities lookup on Linux getent or Solaris getent though.  If I do 
this change, should I send a "head up" or ask for feedback first for 
default output change?
