I always considered BindAddress/Port to be mutually exclusive of Listen. 
I even wrote a patch (but never submitted it) which issued warnings if
users used both Listen and one or more of BindAddress/Port. As I wrote in
htdocs/manual/bind.html (for Apache 1.1): "Listen can be used instead of
BindAddress and Port".

Is there any reason why Port is needed if Listen is being used?
