A proper forum poster would too. ;-)

So a specific use case. What about port 443 (you haven't mentioned it
yet), except what if it's on a non-routable subnet perhaps 8443 should
be preferred then? Should nginx also look for certs in /etc/ssl/ that
have file names that align with server_name? What about multi-homed
servers, should the listen directive default to the IP address(es) that
map to server_name? I could come up with a 100 "ease of use" cases, but
they're still not worthy of hard coding into nginx. Every new line of
code has the potential to introduce new bugs.
