We could do this, but I am afraid it might lead to the same situation we
are in now.  Namely, users saying:

I just added Listen 443 to my config file, and now it stops listening to port 80.

This isn't the only required directive we have, so I don't think it hurts to
not have a default, and just require a Listen directive.
