to have better control over what services are offered. basically, i do
not want to have any random application go and register bunch of
non-existent services. requiring 'root' permission is may be a little
bit excessive, but its easy to fix. could teach sdpd to accept
connections from specified group (or even list of groups/users).

not at this time.
