We don't today.  Should we, probably.  This patch does not touch this
logic though.

That was a poor explanation on my part.  The default port is 80, but we
do not default a listening port anymore.  This means that we will report that
we are listening on port 80 by default, but if there are no Listen directives,
the server will not start.
