Users should probably not be running random applications
that they downloaded from the untrustable internet as root.
Far too many exploits/bugs have happened that way around world.
Use a VM or disposable, or remap IP ports, an unpriviledged user, etc.

If people want to explore or make more ports, FreeBSD will compile
and run many of the newer distributed sharing/filestorage/chat/crypto
apps beyond amule too. Have fun :)
