The Safe_ports list is the ports it is considered safe to send traffic
to from an HTTP proxy. The ports not on that list are for protocols that
can have crafted messages that look like HTTP to the proxy and non-HTTP
to the server. Enabling server attacks through HTTP relays. Email SMTP
ports are particularly vulnerable to spam being delivered in this way.
