(Posting to web-sig):

I can see value in this (some-what). There are certain situations
(UNIX Sockets) where
SERVER_PORT is irrelevant and doesn't make sense. In my experience
setting this to
0 or None is probably okay (when it used to be an int). Can't comment
on byte ordering,
or format, etc... Perhaps SERVER_PORT should be left as it was in the
original PEP 333
specs as an int (or None?)
