Thanks, the exactly the kind of thing I was looking for.

Is the underlying sourcecode available somewhere?  The speed is
acceptable, but I'd rather not be burdening the portsmon server
everytime I want to run a query.  If it was running against my local
copy of the portstree, then nobody else would be inconvenienced.
