No-prize for figuring out why I chose port number 7726.
It's the local extension portion of the Earthlink anti-spam hotline.
Sorry, not a winner, although I bet Earthlink chose those last four digits
for the same reason.
No guarantee that the port will be unused by any other process, and UID
assignments are pretty wild in some installations, but you could always
look at making it a base of some high port + the UID value.
That's a good idea, though I'd be afraid the UID-number space might be
larger than the port-number space.
