  Hmm... I thought I had documented in "proxy.conf" that "hostname"
doesn't work yet.  Oh well.

  Ok.  I'll look at that.

  I'm also looking at support for in-server templates, similar to what
you did with include files.  It looks to be about 100 lines of code, and
can simplify the configuration a lot.

  Hmm... I *strongly* recommend not using domain names in clients
sections or home_server sections.  It's a very bad idea.

  It should be as compatible as possible.  But if breaking compatibility
has huge advantages, it can be seriously considered.
