    http is 80/tcp
    Some systems cannot resolve service "http", so in commit
    8c7e459dc19542646bba5ca5789bdf99dc5724d0 we changed the
    hardcoded default service from "http" to "80".
    Before we complicate the implementation uselessly to first look
    up http and then fall back to 80, just docfix. Port 80 is probably
    _the_ one assignment with the least chance of ever changing.
