[Spread-users] port limitation to int16

I doubt we will do a maintenance release just for this patch.

However, I expect that the next minor version of Spread won't be too far off.  If continued testing proves the experimental version from the folks at JHU is good and stable, then we'll likely incorporate that into the mainline in the not too distant future and do a new minor release that would include this patch.

Thanks for the patch.

Right, I missed the two other definitions of port. It works well now.

Will there be a maintenance release including this patch?
