That would create the following possibilities:

* host example.com:31337, protocol https
* host example.com:31337, protocol unspecified
* host example.com, protocol https
* host example.com, protocol unspecified

How would you like each one to be handled?  My preference would be to
make the user say "host example.com:31337" in the netrc file (the
current situation); that's what we do in Emacs and it lets applications
request credentials for a logical service no matter what the port is.

It means that example.com credentials won't be used for
example.com:31337.  In practice, that has not been a problem for us.
