* The zero seems to be also an usable parameter here.
  Is the system configuration documentation unclear about the applied
  value range for the port allocation?
  Can it happen that special permissions would be needed for a setting?

* How are the chances to improve programming interfaces around
  the module “socketserver”?

Would you like to reduce connection management difficulties because of
an error message like “OSError: [Errno 98] Address already in use”?
