Yeah, ss and grepping for the listening port is probably better,
though to be fair, that listener was intentionally awful. Neither
solution is good. The monkeypatch is probably the current best way,
though you might be able to get a foreground mode formally checked in
to ejabberdctl which would both remove the need for any of these
gymnastics, as well as help out anyone else.

I did miss the lack of fifo support. That said, it looks like you can
configure things like log rotation / retention so not all is lost.
