1 Port in Use?

Why does swift -V tell me that I have 1 port in use even though I just restarted the server and there is nothing playing? Does this mean I am only getting 9 additional ports?

Here is the output:

# uptime; swift -V

07:15:34 up 3 min, 1 user, load average: 0.07, 0.11, 0.05

It's because swift is written in such a way that it opens a port to do everything, including the simple query of counting the ports in use. One might call that "unfortunate behavior", which might well be changed in the next major release.
