Yes, I just added a note about that to the 3.2 documentation. I think I'll
migrate it back to the current docs on the web site as well.

The 3.2 development has been ongoing for close to two years now.
Last year, up to the 3.1.5 release in February, I was looking over at
the 3.2 development code and backporting fixes and features that migrated
easily to 3.1, so much of the changes since 3.1.2 have been things that
were supposedly only to come in 3.2.

However, you should note that if the port number is omitted, it defaults
to 80. If you're using non-standard port numbers, you should specify them
