RFC 2743 section 4.1 doesn't allow for a port number in hostbased
service names, and we don't currently have any provisions in our code to
account for one.

Can you explain more about why you need a port number?  We have an open
bug which might be related to this issue, but probably need more detail
in order to determine precisely what semantics we should have.
