Heimdal's krb5_get_all_server_addrs() is slightly buggy in that it
doesn't use getifaddrs()/freeifaddrs().  I'm planning on fixing that,
but it begs the question:

	Why doesn't the KDC (as an example of a user of said function)
	simply listen on a wildcard address, rather than binding to
	the address that happen to be configured at the time that the
	KDC is started?

Sounds like what it should do is bind to wildcard *unless* addresses
to bind to are explicitly in the configuration file.
