I believe portrelease is in use because of an outstanding bug I have
from 2002 or so? The problem is that various RPC programs have a
tendency to grab low ports (ypbind being the one that showed up nearly
constantly for a month at the workplace) and cause CUPS (and various
other utilities) to not work in various ways. If the systemd will make
sure that ypbind, rpc.netstatd and other older generation programs do
not grab other programs those requirements would not be needed.
