For nmap-dev: Twice in a month? Maybe we should add this functionality. IF
this were to be added as a feature, I think a syntax similar to -p would be

# nmap -sS -sU --top-ports T:1000,U:200

for scanning top 1000 TCP and top 200 UDP ports. Skipping the T: or U: would
give the same behavior as currently. I'm not sure how hard that would be to
implement, though.

If someone implements such a feature and sends a patch, we will
definitely consider it.  I like the simplicity of the syntax above,
though a down side is that it doesn't allow users to add or remove
ports from the top X.  I posted some other syntax ideas (I'm not
saying they are any better) at
