Personally I like the second and third edit from Robert's patch, but not
the first one. I'm having a hard time seeing why you would specify host
*and* hostaddr as this seems to imply.
I also agree with Fabien's comment that host can be a path -- it's
really a path to a socket file, but it's certainly not a host name or IP
address. Perhaps that should be called out explicitly.
