I think Jeff is saying that;

Listen n.n.n.n:80

shouldn't listen to more than one port.  If given in IPv4 notation, it should
only listen on that address.  Given in IPv6 notation, should only listen on
the IPv6 address.

But I'd agree that

Listen 80

is a special case.  

Maybe [to keep Jeff happy] we further parse

Listen *:80
Listen [*]:80

to bind to only IPv4 and IPv6 respectively (or something like that???)
