[webkit-dev] Why is port 8080 hard-coded in LayoutTests/http/conf/*httpd.conf?

In r24746, the three *httpd.conf files in LayoutTests/http/conf were
changed to listen on port 8080 as well.  The relevant section in
those files looks like this now:

# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
# Configured from the httpd command line for WebKit layout tests.
# Port 8443 is hard-coded as it is needed for the HTTPS configuration later on.
#Listen 3000

Should we add a comment to explain why port 8080 is hard-coded?

Why don't we pass -C 'Listen' to httpd on the command
