Which brings me to a thing that I have always wondered about.

What is "ssh 22/udp" good for?  I see this for many standard TCP services
in recent /etc/services files, but it makes no sense.  SSH is not UDP,
and will never be, so why make "22/udp" an official port number for it?

(This might not be the appropriate list, but maybe someone knows and can
enlighten me...)
