I run a bridge [1] on other ports (9030 and 9001).  How much would it
help to move it to port 80?  I think at the time I configured it I still
had a normal http server on port 80, but this no longer applies.

By the way: why can I not see the ports (under OR Addresses) or anything
under Transport protocols in the metrics listing?
