/etc/services losses


attached is a diff with services that for some reason or other got 
dropped from /etc/services - in particular Amanda* and AppleTalk.

While this may be established and long-standing practice: Does our 
/etc/services have to be so butt-ugly?  With line lengths too large for 
any of my screens, and pointless, repetitive name entries which most 
admins won't care for? And if they are somehow relevant to somebody, 
why not stash a copy under /usr/share/there/be/dragons, and pare down 
the file in actual use?

The repeated loss of entries is an immediate consequence of the file's 
shape - look at the version history, no committer would look at the 

Anyway... okay to commit?
