Martin wasn't asking people to open up more ports 80 and 443 in exit
policies. He was asking people to change their ORPort to 443, and change
their DirPort to 80. This is for when people use you as their entry node.

This matters because some Tor users are behind restrictive firewalls
that only allow certain ports to get to the Internet.

Windows Tor servers who aren't doing something else with these ports
can just change the entry in their torrc. The only catch that I'm aware
of is that some ISPs filter incoming connections to these ports. So
if you change it and your Tor server is suddenly convinced that you're
unreachable, change it back. :)

No, we never write any streams to files.
