This is all very interesting. Here's one I'd like to have: A netstat
that lists the PID for the process that has a connection open. Many
times I can look at netstat output, and see open connections, but I
have no way of knowing which process (or more specifically, which
user) has that connection open.

Or is it just me being stupid, and there *is* a way of doing this?
