I agree that the syntax is odd. It already was odd before.
I am fine simplying it to just path, but it would fully break syntactical 
backward compatibility.

I don't really care. 554 would cause a lot of problems as stupid users don't 
understand the concept of "Permission denied" error on privileged ports.
