The explicit port settings works for the game port, but the GameSpy query
port seems to be hardcoded to 23000 for the first instance of a server on a
box. If it can't bind to 23000, it just adds one and tries again (so if you
have 3 servers on a box, you'll have 23000, 23001, 23002 bound for the
GameSpy ports). The ASE ports have a set offset for its port binding
(relative to the game port).
Just would make it a bit easier for some automated stuff if GameSpy bound to
an offset a la the ASE stuff. Well, it would for some of our stuff, maybe
not everyone elses :)
