if we change that, hordes of Nagios users will try to stone us because
their monitoring installation lit up like a christmas tree ;)

Seriously though, I don't think that'd be a big problem, but it'd be a
backwards incompatible change nontheless. Besides, where do you want to
connect *to*? The TCP sockets thingy was implemented to be equipped for
the future, but to my knowledge noone has improved the “netcmd”
plugin [0] to be ready for inclusion yet, so there isn't actually any
server code who could handle the connection.
