Nice work Patrick, this change is cool and should make hacking NSE a
whole lot easier.
Thought it might be useful to see the port number in debug output at the
start and finishing of a script and have attached a patch.
This is a good patch and I've applied it in r13103.
Thanks (and sorry for the late reply),
