I went "through the trouble" of getting the service registered to make
sure that nobody else uses port 6566. At that time I didn't really
care about the name used in "services". I'm not sure why I used
"sane-port" but I remember there was some reason not to use "sane".

Update the documentation in CVS. Mention in the manpages that "sane"
is now deprecated.
