Hi Toni,

We thought long and hard about the circumstances under which the script to
run. Since the only way of finding out whether a password is incorrect was
through a timeout, and this service isn't quite the popular one, we decided
to make the ports argument mandatory so it doesn't run by default. If it
detects an open|filtered 31337/udp port, it suggests that it could be run
against it.

As for the summary, I think it's good to have it. Most of Nmap's users
aren't typical users anyway, so they might use some insight into the
building blocks of a certain script. It's a quite subjective topic. :-)
