Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45405] Allow binding port to be set for individual workers for proxy requests

The value of selecting the port range is that it can be pre-determined and/or
reserved in advance and thus programmed into a firewall.  Some people prefer
stricter control than others.  Some may want to reserve other ranges for other
programs/services and thus need to tell apache to avoid such.

As far as documentation goes, you're the first to ask for it formally.  I'll
see if I can generate such during July.  It won't be substantially different
that what was presented in text except for the HTML tags that will be added and
a diff file generated.

Note that this proposal predated the "simpler one" committed by two years (July
2008 vs. November 2010, but opened in 2004).  I'm supposed to know that someone
came along, opened a bug in parallel, and did the same work when after 4 years,
it still had not been committed -- as opposed to abandoned?  Regardless, it was
[first] propsoed against Apache version 1 where this approach started with
version 2 and ignored 1.  Also note that this version is more versitile - in
that the address/port range may differ per worker or proxied target, not
constant across all proxied connections.
