J.W. Janssen resolved FELIX-2786.

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: http-2.2.2

As nobody complained in the meantime, I've applied the patch supplied by [~thecarlhall] after
applying some small cleanups. See rev #1540843.

> Sometimes we cannot configure the used port for a HTTPService up front, so it would be
nice to have the service select one itself; the chosen port would then have to be communicated
to the outside world. Since it should not just select any random port e.g. for security reasons,
it should be possible to specify a range as property.
> Marcel suggested a port config value along the lines of port="random" or port="pick-from-range(8000,9000)".
