How hard would it be to change this hardcoded port (is it possible
without totally destroying everything... is this hardcoded within
codasrv, rpc2 or a little everywhere)?  From an ignorant persons point
of view, it would seem that a Coda Server / Venus pair running on a port
other than the default would provide better scalability and possibly
better security.
