As ports.conf does not contain anything else, editing it should not cause 
much hassle with updates. Therefore I don't see that this is necessary.

Having the Listen statments in the virtual host files causes problems with 
name based virtual hosts, so I don't think that would be a good idea.

It's definitely too late for jessie. I will leave the bug open and 
consider it again after jessie release.
