We already did as near as I can tell ("grep -i BindAddress" in all .c
and .h).

If we don't really need Port ('cause we don't need a port number in
addition to what is specified on the Listen statement), then I'm all
for dropping Port.  But if we need the functionality of Port I'd
rather see it remain as-is than overload ServerName like that.
