Uh, but those are not the same. If we bind to localhost we can't
communicate with non-localhost addresses. inadds_any corresponds so
0.0.0.0/0 which you are specifically *not* supposed to use - you
should use the magic constant and not a manual such. And I don't know
if there is a symbolic name that corresponds to it at all?
Pgstat only talks locally so that's a completely different thing.
