I'd argue that it's an actual saving of resources (for some use

running these cost ~12MB of some combination of swap space and
I think you'll find it you look at /proc/PID/map that nearly all of
this is read-only mmap of libraries and the main binary. Those bits
cost you nothing.
That's true, it's probably (a lot?) less that I'm representing above
but it's still greater than zero.
I also think you'll find that once you start doing things like rpc
over tcp that trying to manage your ports via an external daemon
becomes a nightmare. That's why Samba4 doesn't support inetd.
I'm not familiar with the issue with rpc on tcp. Could you elaborate?
