It's worth noting that some port scanners do go a little further. For
instance, recent versions of strobe do this:

joey at gumdrop:~>strobe localhost
strobe 1.05 (c) 1995-1999 Julian Assange <proff at iq.org>.
localhost    13 daytime      
                -> Wed May 31 15:34:59 2000\r\n
localhost    37 time         timserver
                -> \188\224\18\19
localhost    25 smtp         mail
                -> 220 gumdrop.su.varesearch.com ESMTP Exim 3.12 #1 Wed, 31 May 2000 15:34:59 -070
                -> 0\r\n
localhost    22 ssh          # SSH Remote Login Protocol
                -> SSH-1.5-OpenSSH-1.2.3\n

Which is very handy when it gets up to high ports:

localhost  5556 unassigned   unknown
                -> version=3.3.2 uptime=8+05:43:56 audio-bits=16 audio-byte-order=littl
                -> e-endian audio-channels=2 audio-device=/dev/dsp audio-format=linear-16 audio-fr
                -> agsize=4096 audio-port=speaker,headphone,lineout audio-rate=10 audio-sample-rat
                -> e=44100 volume=191 curr-rate=10 priority-threshold=0 audio-close=5 audio-device
                -> -status=closed\r\n

(That's rplayd.)
