That is totally besides the point. Unfortunately the Seaside community
regularly tries to scare away those interested in the product by
giving unhelpful advice.

Everyone expects publically available web sites to be on port 80.
Anyone who is trying to market a web site product should understand
that people will expect stuff to be available on port 80, and also
understand the technique to make it available that way.
