Description

To get the snoop utility, one must presently install the pkg:/service/network/network-clients package. This, regrettably, brings with it a variety of other programs that nobody should install anymore:

$ pkg contents -Ha path='*bin/*' network-clients
usr/bin/filesync
usr/bin/rcp
usr/bin/rdate
usr/bin/rdist
usr/bin/remsh
usr/bin/rlogin
usr/bin/rsh
usr/bin/rup
usr/bin/ruptime
usr/bin/rusers
usr/bin/whois
usr/sbin/rmt
usr/sbin/rwall
usr/sbin/snoop
usr/sbin/spray

We should just create a pkg:/network/snoop and put it in there. Presumably the existing package should then depend on the new package so that we don't inhibit any coping mechanisms people may already have in place.
