Users need to create a security group in the EC2 web interface and
specify which ports their instances will be using. If you randomize
the ports used by the Tor Cloud instances, users will have no idea
which ports to open.

Also, you can drop obfs2 now and just implement support for normal
bridges and obfs3. In a few weeks, you should be able to add
scramblesuit and one other transport as well.
