If it were port=0 then you would better define a separate
getLocalPort() property.

The "auto" value... how can that be?  Connector.setPort() accepts
integer, and it can also be accessed through JMX.

There are several layers, and if you say "update its port number",
which of them will update its member variable and which not, and what
happens if connector is restarted e.g. through JMX?

Also I would like to introduce support for "-1" value for port number,
as I mentioned above, but that would be a separate feature.
