	We should probably have a plan for this sort of thing for the binary  
branch.  This patch makes the tree very sad as it is.

	Should we assume that every interface that binds for the text  
protocol should also bind for the binary protocol?  That seems pretty  
straightforward, and will probably be consistent with the UDP strategy.

	I've not been paying much attention to this thread, honestly.  Is  
there a short summary of the goal of explicit multiple interface  
binding?  It doesn't seem like it does much over IN_ADDR_ANY in the  
general case but become a multiplier for file descriptors (once  
there's a binary UDP implementation, it'd be n interfaces * m layer 3  
protocols * 4).

	I'm not so much questioning its value as I am curious.  Right now, it  
just looks like a lot of work for me.  :)
