Wow, more ACKs than actual lines of codes affected .-) - I hear you
wrt "have a #define somewhere" (and yes, we could do that) or "make it
easier to configure for users" (nah... for the reasons Antonio gave) :-)

Patch has been applied to the master and release/2.4 branch.

2.4, because (see the discussion in the ticket) this effectively 
acknowledges the changing nature of the internet, with ubiquitous
background scanning on well-known ports like TCP/443 - thus getting
in the way of production openvpn setups with "listen(s,1)".
