Allow port numbers in syndication URLs
Short, concise description of the idea
Currently, the URL behind a syndication account may not contain a ":" followed by a number. It would be nice if this restriction were lifted.
Full description of the idea
For some reason, URLs containing port specifications (e.g. http://www.example.com:8080/feed.rss) are not allowed as source URLs for syndicated accounts.
However, some services provide RSS feeds on ports such as 8000 or 8080 (which have a fairly long history as "alternate" HTTP ports) or 8888. It would be nice if it would be possible to enable feeding from non-standard ports.
