[gnutls-devel] gnutls-cli vs service name

I tried to use gnutls-cli to test out my xmpp server, but was unable to
do so because the --starttls-proto=xmpp support uses the server name in
the jabber:client bit of xml rather than a service name.

And the server vs service issue is more generic.  All of the SRV protos
of course require supplying both service and server, but even https can
need both, such as when testing a new server before switching the A RRs.

How do you feel about a --service-name option?  Or maybe just --service?
